This is a wonderful and charming piece. It is an antique French painted tole kitchen towel rack from the early 20th century in blue and white "Lustucru" pattern.

Each of the four labels distinguishes a kitchen towel for a specific use - I love that idea: dishes ("vaisselles"), glasses ("verres"), knives ("couteaux") and hands ("mains"), . It makes sense. Before automatic dish washers, when everyone still washed their dishes by hand. So, you would want to dry plates, which could be greasy, separately from glasses...and hands...and knives!

This wonderful piece is in great condition - the hooks are all intact and the labels are clearly legible. This could not only be hung as a charming kitchen decor or could still serve its original purpose and hold four pretty kitchen towels!!!

Dimensions: 13.5 inches long x 3.75 inches wide

About French Enameled Ware: "Every piece, for those who can see it, has a fascinating little detail. It can be the shape or the decoration, the color of a flower, a butterfly, a bird trying to catch a bee, a landscape in winter, a sunrise, or simply the elegant curve of a handle or spout that makes it so unique. This unlimited variety of style and design makes French enameled ware so incredibly alive and charming that even people who have not seen it before have to stop and admire it. ... What makes it so special and attractive is the use of colors and wonderful designs, so close to nature or so abstract (depending on the period), but always striving for esthetic and artistic perfection." from French Enameled Ware for the Collector
