Antique Towel French Torchon Metis Linen Cotton Stripe Embroidered Monogram S R

Antique Towel French Torchon Metis Linen Cotton Stripe Embroidered Monogram S R (L&T-389) Here is an antique French torcheon towel featuring a S R monogram & a large red stripe with 2 smaller stripes running along the top, bottom & sides of the towel.

Antique French Towel Measurement: 33" x 23 1/4" approx.

The antique French striped towel features a hand embroidered S R monogram. Each initial monogram is 7/8" high and 5/8" wide.

Antique French Towel Condition: The tea towel is in excellent condition. With the 2 available towels for sale, there are a few age dirt storage marks along the folds but no obvious faults with the towel.

Circa: early 20th century. Color: beige

The monogram initials are located in the top left side of the vintage towel. The embroidered work was done by a person skilled in embroidery techniques as it is beautifully executed.

Material: The French seller said the towels that I purchased were linen however I believe that the towel may be metis. Metis it is a woven fabric in which linen is used for the vertical thread and cotton is used for the horizontal thread. I have taken a close-up of the fibers.

The towel fabric is of a high quality with an exquisite drape. There is some stiffness to the towel and the towel may be unused or at the least lightly used. It is extremely tough so the tea towel should last years.

The towel has a selvage side edges and hand stitched top and bottom edges. The towel has a hanging strap at the left hand corner of the towel.

This towel is sure to add a beautiful French touch in your kitchen. , 155 grams
