Antique French Towel, woven of a gorgeous Linen and Flax in natural oatmeal, with a woven in stripe accent in dark wine red. Monogram is the same burgundy wine red cross stitched V I, in the center. This is an heirloom quality linen...securely kept all these years in a French Hope Chest, part of treasured "Family Linen." Dating to the first half of the 1900's, this decorative beauty is cool to the touch and has a sturdy "hand" as only vintage and antique linen will have.
Beautiful selvages, fantastic woven striped detailing, as well as a heavier weight make this a decorative joy! May have uneven weaving indicative of hand looming, in good antique condition. Perfect addition to your collection, for your French Country kitchen, to hang on your luxury range, to display with a farm basket holding your fresh baked bread. Measures 24" x 22-1/2".
