Stunning 19th Century Towel is quite an exciting find! The size of a bath towel, this antique textile is perfect for your home spa. Hand woven of linen and hemp with an exceptional texture, this towel is strong enough to last at least another 100 years. Yarn dyed madder red stripes, woven in a herringbone design, run horizontally on each end. Embroidered with J V laundry mark in one corner.
From a trousseau, cherished family linen heirloom, has the glorious uneven hand weaving we love, hand stitched hems, and is in wonderful antique condition. Use this as intended in your bath, or as a table throw. Layer in an antique basket for a luxury display, a French Country addition to your linen collection. Lovely heavy quality, rare, I don't find these all that often.
