These three beautifully quilted, handmade pot holders were made by a very talented lady in Clarkesville GA in the very early 1960s. The work in them is quite amazing. Look at all the folds, the overlays, the selection of patterns and colors and types of materials - not to mention the intricate hand-stitching!

All three pot holders are a nice large 7-1/2 inches across, and very very thick because of all the folding, overstitching, and binding. Each has a plastic loop at the top for hanging close to your microwave, barbecue, oven or stove. The price listed is for the SET of three. The materials, for the most part, seem to me to be a heavy linen-like, or monk's cloth, fabric, with uneven thread lines that add character and sturdiness. The outer edges are all hand sewn.

The rust and tan one with black patterned trim has very light fading to the outer border, and a faint tan stain on the back - otherwise, it is in excellent condition.

The pumpkin, green and tan one has some very pale tan discoloration on the back and one small area at 4 o'clock which is open - possibly a slight burn, which could easily be re-sewn - barely noticeable.

The olive, red and dark green one appears a little wrinkled, but a quick pressing would fix this right away. There is a very VERY tiny frayed area on the front (in the olive green fabric) which is barely noticeable. Otherwise, this one, too, is in superb condition.

Handmade, beautiful decorative vintage pieces like these are hard to find, as handcrafts fall by the wayside in our ever-busier days. These are gorgeous - whether you plan to actually use them as pot holders, or just want them for display!
