Antique Towel, woven of a gorgeous Linen in light Cream, with a hand embroidered Red Monogram "FB". Beautiful selvages, and fantastic woven in open weave bow detailing. 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.
The damask has fleur-de-lis and clovers woven in, beautiful! This has never been used, it does have storage stains which should soak out, I know that many collectors prefer the unused towels and therefore we have not washed it. 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 37" x 19".
