Here is a sweet vintage tea towel featuring a couple, perhaps newlyweds, drying dishes as they sit back to back and look toward their future together.

By the appearance of the couples clothing, my best guess is that this adorable towel is from the 1950's.

Both the man and the woman, or husband and wife, are sharing one kitchen stool as they sit and dry the dishes. They look blissfully happy as they settle into domestic life.
And if you look closely at the woman, she has a tiny yellow heart for her mouth.

And take a look at those plates they are holding. I wonder if they are Fire-King Jadite?

Also featured on the towel are stylized cherries, some flowers and leaves for a pretty design.

There is a nice border that runs around the graphics as well.

The soft shades of yellow, green and blue are really just charming.

The towel measures about 27 inches by about 15 1/4 inches.
Measurements are approximate.

Not precisely sure what this towel is made of, I am leaning towards it being linen but it may be a blend.

This vintage tea towel would make a nice addition to your textile collection or use as a wall hanging.

No bad smells or odors.
When I hold this towel up to the light, I note some storage stains.

There are a few threads within the towel that are a darker shade of a tan or brown color.
There is some rub or fading to the design or pattern from storage and age.

There is some areas where the dye did not grab properly or streaked, please refer to the photograph with coin so you can see an example.
There is some color transfer.

I have not laundered or pressed this towel and will leave that up to the new owner if they so desire.

The towel has natural fold lines, some wrinkling and a few creases from being stored away for years.
Some nubs and pulls in the fabric and some extra threads.

Please see all the pictures. Pardon the glare from camera flash. Coin is for scale and not part of listing.
Note different computers can read colors differently.
