I've sold several Yellowstone Park souvenir aprons over the years, but none like this one from the 1940s, made of yellow satin and white silk or silk-type fabric with tinted, screen printed Western cowboy and Indian images. It measures 17 inches long at the center by about 18 inches wide including the bright yellow ruffling. Each tie extends about 20 inches from the apron.
The Western printed design is wonderful: a diamond shape center image of a cowboy on a bucking horse bordered by lariats, saddles, horses, covered wagons, cactus, teepees, and other Western motifs. Each of the four corners has a different image: Indian chief, cowgirl, a cowboy who very much resembles one of our former Presidents, and a Yellowstone Falls scene with Indians in front of their teepee. Yellowstone Park is printed at the bottom of the apron.
Despite my lousy pictures, it's in excellent, clean condition with no stains, tears, or damage. The apron could use a pressing to remove some storage wrinkles.
