Exlusif grande luxe Damask Tea Towel, impeccably woven of the finest linen with a stunning figural design of a royal lady. This antique French Linen Towel is of a fine heavy quality, cool to the touch, a cream ivory color with beautiful sheen. The figure is of a young woman wearing an ermine edged cloak over her gown. Woven with the most unusual French floral bouquets tied with ribbon bows and surrounded by laurel wreaths and wheat.
The figural towels are the most rare to find, and the most collectable. This heirloom family linen towel comes from a French trousseau, made in 1900 for a noble woman, never used. Two large cotton loops for hanging. The design is gorgeous, but very difficult to photograph-trust me, if you collect, this is a treasure. A glorious addition to your collection of antique textiles, or to present as a luxury host or hostess gift. These are so rare to find. You can read about the linen purchase here >
