So, I have been holding on to this towel for a few weeks 'cause it is just so dang cute, and, the little calico on it reminds me of my little calico sitting beside me right now. Alas, the time has come to list, however, and, for you, what a beauty it is! The towel appears to have never been used, and, still has the remnants of the original paper label at the bottom. For this reason I have left it completely alone and have not laundered or ironed it. It is super clean and just like new as the day it was put away in a drawer 50+ years ago. I bought this from a couple cleaning out the storage unit of the woman's 92 year old sister from California. I found some other neat items, but, this is the first one I am listing. Most Tammis Keefe designs are prominently signed but for some reason this one is not. Usually this towel is seen with the repeat below and the large "Momma cat" above. I believe this may have been a companion piece to that design and have seen one other listed on the web that also did not have a signature. I am 100% sure this is Tammis Keefe, and not a repro. The background is a warm, deep ochre/mustard color. The other colors are deep kelly green, black, white and umber/warm coppery brown. The graphics are bright and crisp, the towel linen and no damage whatsoever. Measurements are 27 1/4" x 16 3/4". It is screen printed on the front and hemmed on all four sides. A delight to begin or supplement any Tammis Keefe collection!
