#m2291 – WILENDUR “ROYAL ROSE” KITCHEN TOWELS (4) - $50.00

ALTHOUGH THESE BEAUTIFUL TOWELS DO NOT HAVE A WILENDUR TAG, THEY MATCH THE TABLECLOTH WE JUST LISTED! I PURCHASED THEM TOGETHER AND AM CONFIDENT THEY ARE WILENDUR PRODUCTIONS. THERE ARE 4 TOWELS IN THIS LISTING, EACH MEASURES APPROXIMATELY 18” X 34” AND ARE IN WONDERFUL CONDITION – NO HOLES, TEARS, OR SNAGS. AS WITH THE TABLECLOTH, I LAUNDERED BUT DID NOT PRE-SOAK OR SPOT-TREAT AND WHEN IRONING, I NOTICED THERE A COUPLE LIGHT YELLOW SPOTS THAT MAY BENEFIT FROM A SOAK. VERY PRETTY AND COLORFUL!

#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.

#ch596 - HAND EMBROIDERED HOLIDAY TOWELS (2) - $24.00

SET OF 2 COLORFULLY EMBROIDERED HOLIDAY GUEST TOWELS! THE EMBROIDERY AND CROSS STITCH ARE VERY WELL DONE AND TOWELS ARE IN UNUSED CONDITION. THEY HAVE BEEN A PART OF MY LINEN COLLECTION FOR MANY YEARS. VERY NICE!

#m1612 - NEW HARMONY KITCHEN TOWEL - $10.00

THE DETAIL ON THIS KITCHEN TOWEL IS OUTSTANDING! IT DEPICTS THE CONTENTS OF AN OLD GENERAL STORE IN NEW HARMONY INDIANA – THERE’S A PICKLE BARREL, SACKS OF BEANS AND SALT, A BARREL OF LARD, ETC. TOWEL IS A WARREN BOUCHER DESIGN AND IT HAS NEVER BEEN USED – STILL HAS THE “KAYDEE HANDPRINTS” PAPER LABEL. MADE OF 100% PURE LINEN AND MEASURES 30 ½” X 17”. I PURCHASED THIS TOWEL AT AN ESTATE SALE AND IT’S A SUPER COLLECTIBLE!

#m1590 - POODLE APRON AND TWO POODLE TOWELS!! - $68.00

FOR ALL YOU COLLECTORS OF POODLE RELATED ITEMS, THIS LISTING IS FOR YOU – LISTING HAS A CHEF POODLE KITCHEN TOWEL, A GUEST TOWEL WITH AN EMBROIDERED POODLE, AND A POODLE APRON! THE COLORFUL TOWEL SHOWS GRAY POODLES COOKING VEGETABLES – THIS IS A “BOOK” PIECE AND CAN BE SEEN IN “FUN LINENS & HANDKERCHIEFS OF THE 20TH CENTURY” WITH A PRICE RANGE OF $25-$35. THE POODLE GUEST TOWEL HAS A HAND EMBROIDERED FANCY GRAY POODLE. ALSO INCLUDED IN THIS LISTING IS A POODLE APRON! PLEASE SEE PHOTOS TO APPRECIATE THIS WONDERFUL HANDMADE APRON – IT WAS MADE BY ROGER’S MOM AND I ESTIMATE IT TO BE FROM THE 50’S/60’S -- ROGER’S MOM WAS AN EXTRAORDINARILY TALENTED SEAMSTRESS AND NEEDLE WORKER. I DON’T BELIEVE THIS APRON HAS EVER BEEN WORN.
~~~I’M ALSO INCLUDING (AT NO CHARGE) A CLOTH WITH PINK POODLES ON IT – HAS A SMALL TEAR AND A COUPLE PIN HOLES BUT IS TOO CUTE TO THROW AWAY~~~
