Description

Darling pair of wash stand towels. I believe these to be a pair of washstand towels, from the time before master bathrooms were common.

These hand towels would hang on the bar of a a washstand which displayed a pitcher and bowl for washing up in the morning.

Measurements:
approx 12" x 20"

Pink with white and black embroidery. The embroidery is nice hand work. The edge also had what I believe is called faggoting, a counted thread hand working to create a fancy edged border at the bottom of the towel.

My guess on the fabric would be linen. These are soft and as you can see broken in.

I have these listed as circa 1930's but the time frame really could be anywhere from 1890s-1950s.

As usual I have left these in the condition which I found them. They have not been pressed, and are photographed with their wrinkles from storage.

Shipping is USPS Priority mail, flat rate.

Shipping policies


Our preferred shipping carrier is USPS. Please communicate any shipping questions to us BEFORE ORDERING .........Very fragile or heavy items may have a higher shipping cost, and a bit longer shipping time...so please realize that if you see a shipping fee that seems a bit high Sometimes a higher shipping fee is due to the time involved in packing and the extra or unusual packing materials necessary to protect the item to insure intact delivery. Some items will require insurance due to their fragile nature. Feel free to convo me to query about overseas delivery. I am willing to check with the post office about shipping to other countries, but I cannot know a price for that delivery until that consultation. Drop us a convo and we can investigate for you...please don't request the quote if you are not serious about purchase. International purchases can not be insured, so you the buyer, not we the sellers, assume the risk in international shipping.
