This is an absolutely wonderful pair of guest or fingertip towels made of pale mint green super fine linen. The hand embroidered design is either of Chinese Lantern plants or perhaps more prosaically, autumn leaves -- either way, it's quite exquisite and unusual. The orange and light brown make a lovely contrast to the pale green background.

The towels are hemstitched at the bottom edges and hand-hemmed on the long sides. These were clearly very high quality linens back in the day. They do have some minor flaws, however, they look much better than they sound! The color is most accurate in the first photograph.

Made of fine linen
Measures about 14 x 20 inches

Condition: one towel has two light stains (I have not soaked these), a few loose stitches, and a few dark marks on the back; the other has one very faint mark and one pinhole.

Please be sure to read shop announcement in case there may be a shipping delay.

All our vintage linens have been washed and pressed.
Please remember that vintage items are not new and often not perfect, and that they have had a long life of their own before they entered ours.
