Great Unused Vintage Pure Linen Kitchen Towels ~ Bold Primary Striped Colorway, c.1940's
What a great find ~ a stash of unused, vintage, high quality and very colorful striped
linen kitchen towels, dating to apx. the 1940's.The towels are generously sized and
nicely finished, most with all four edges hemmed, but several have two hemmed edges
and two selvage edges. Most retain the Pure Linen paper label.The medium weight
linen is excellent quality, tightly woven, smooth and quite fine. Although origin
is not noted on the labels, quality is certainly equivalent to the best Irish linen
of the day. The towels have never been used or laundered and retain original polish.
I expect the creamy linen ground color will lighten somewhat with first wash.These
towels were still bundled together and secured with original ribbon ties when found,
seemingly safely stored away for many, many years.They are in exceptionally fine
vintage estate condition. Bright primary color stripes, typical of the 1930’s and
40’s, remain rich and vibrant and I find no stains, spots, specks, tears, snags or
any other type of problem.Perfect gift for the kitchen linens collector.We also have
eighteen similar towels from the same estate, with slightly different color combination,
offered separately. See link at page left.Please Note: Price is per towel. Presently
6 are available. To purchase more than one, simply change the number in the quantity
box below to desired amount (up to 6) and click the adjacent Add To Cart Button.
