Vintage and Antique Linens by Em's Heart

Best Antique Linen Society Silk Towel

Item Number G08704

Detailed and charming, society silk embroidery imbues Victorian elegance like no other textile art form.  This piece is a wonderful example of the whimsy that was often characteristic of the work.  The details are exquisite, the colorations perfect.  Delicate little chickadees frolic in an apple blossom filled basket that sits atop a tufted cushion.  The gold (real gold floss that has tarnished with age) netted tassels and gilded "gimp" trim are the Victorian finishing touch... Absolutely beautiful on medium to heavy cream linen!   The difference in coloration between the monogram (stunning work!!!) and the rest of the piece?  The monogram was done in either cotton or linen floss which was far less likely to fade or bleed than the silk.  Faintest age lines are marginally apparent on old folds.  Entirely hand made.  Superb condition, offered as found.  Huge, 23" X 50"
