#m2107 – BLACK AMERICANA – PAIR OF KITCHEN TOWELS - $90.00

I PURCHASED THESE TWO KITCHEN TOWELS SOMETIME AGO AT THE SAME ESTATE SALE WHERE I PURCHASED THE “RISQUÉ” TOWEL SET THAT WE RECENTLY SOLD! LIKE THOSE TOWELS, THESE HAD NEVER BEEN USED AND HAD FAINT STORAGE LINES AND A MUSTY SMELL – I HAVE LAUNDERED, LIGHTLY STARCHED, AND IRONED THEM AND THEY TURNED OUT GREAT WITH VIVID COLORS! THESE TOWELS ARE NOT THE “NEW” ISSUES THAT ARE SURFACING – I HAVE SEEN THOSE AND THEY ARE MADE OF VERY LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIAL. THE TOWELS IN THIS LISTING HAVE A HEAVY THREAD COUNT. THE RED TOWEL MEASURES 29” LONG, 15 ½” WIDE, THE PEACH COLOR IS 29” LONG, 15 ¼” WIDE. THESE ARE “BOOK” PIECES AND MAY BE SEEN ON PAGE 170 OF “ANTIQUE LINENS” BY MARSHA L. MANCHESTER.

BOTH TOWELS ARE IN EXCELLENT, UNUSED CONDITION. THE PEACH COLOR ONE HAS A PRODUCTION BLEMISH – SEE PHOTO – IT’S JUST ABOVE THE WATERMELON IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER – IT’S EXTRA PEACH COLOR THAT SHOULDN’T BE THERE.
