The person that I purchased this rustic cloth from believes that it came from Germany in the 1920's. It had belonged to her sister-in-law. Two heavy weight cotton panels were sewn together. One side is a knitted pique pattern and the other side is a rib. The Turkey Red checkered borders down both sides. There are no stains. It is a bright white in color. It would feel out home in a Vintage kitchen. The dimensions are approximately 41" X 40".
