Antique French Towel, woven of a gorgeous Linen, Cotton and Flax in light Cream and natural oatmeal, with a woven in stripe of Black and Red. Beautiful selvages, and fantastic woven striped detailing. This rougher linen was 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.
May have soft signs of over a hundred years of use, in good antique condition. Textural country open weave. 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. Unwashed condition, never used, this should soften and soak out the folding storage stain. Measures 20-1/2" x 23".
