Now you can count your blessings and your calories at the same time with this pretty Vintage Counting Calories linen tea towel from the 1960's.

The whimsical pattern includes fruits, meats,some veggies and beverages from milk to wine.

And of course some yummy desserts are featured too. There is even dessert danger declared on one that just may be assorted Bon Bons.

Made of pure linen, it measures about 25 inches by about 15 inches. Measurements are approximate.

Juicy shades of purple, orange and green offer a nice, flavorful pop of color to the off white or ivory background.

This towel may have been made by Parisian Prints, but I am not certain who manufactured it..

On the bottom on one side it reads Pure Linen in script
On the other side of the bottom it is marked Original Design copyright 1963. There are some letters near the 1963, but I am not able to make them out clearly.

Nice to add to your vintage tea towel collection or to use as a display in your kitchen.

This just may be the towel for you if you are on a SEE FOOD diet.

No bad smell or odors.
Near the word Calories there is a remnant of a paper label or piece of tape that I am leaving just as it is.
There are 2 pin holes near the bottom.
When I hold this up to bright light I can see some storage stains.

On the back of the towel there is a small brownish stain that is about an inch long.

There is some rub and loss to the pattern and lettering from age and storage.

There is some uneven dye color in spots and some streaking which looks to be just the way it was made

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 are 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, wrinkling and 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.
