From the middle of the 1800s, this gorgeous damask show towel is large, measures.19-1/2 inches by 36 inches in actual size, with an additional fringe length of 4 inches.
It’s creamy white in color, with fruit, florals and swags woven in a rich gold. The ornamental design is wide, and makes for a very attractive edge decoration just above the deep hand-knotted fringe. The overall design of the damask is woven in a leaf and branch pattern.
Condition is Very Good, with a few tiny and very slight age spots, nothing serious. It has no holes, frays or tears.
If you enjoy good early textiles of fine quality, this would be a fine addition to your collection.
