Exceptional Antique Society Silk Embroidered Hand or Guest Towel, with luxury padded silk work and a luscious Pink J worked in bourdon stitch. How stunning is this? This high quality towel is of a lustrous satin cream linen, silk & cotton blend with a diamond shaped design known in French as "oeil de perdrix," or eye of the partridge, sublime!
The wide floral border is worked with careful, expert stitching in pinks, red, greeen, gold and cream floss, it is on both edges. The towel ends on two sides with finely knotted fringe, which is missing length here and there, I have kept it "as found", you can certainly trim should you wish. One or two areas of loss where the silk knotted part is torn in one place. A beautiful towel to add to your collection of antique linens and display with great joy. Measures 43" x 28-1/2". without the fringe.
