Antique French Linen Hand Towels Monogrammed GB

Antique French Linen Hand Towels Monogrammed GB

Pure elegance of design and superb craftsmanship for this stunning trio of decorative hand towels! These lovely towels are loomed of a pure white, fine and very supple linen known as "granite" for its subtly textured surface. A jewel-like monogram is centrally embroidered in both high relief and open-work lace with two superimposed initials which I believe are "BG" or "GB" (but could pass just as well for "CB" or "BC"). The perimeter of each towel is framed with elaborate drawn-thread embroidery, a delicate hem-stitch, and four diamond-shaped inserts of Venetian lace, echoing that of the monogram. A lovely touch is that each of the lace inserts has a different motif! Very likely dating from the end of the 19th century these stunning towels are in impeccable condition! Two additional sets of three towels are available upon request. Dimensions: 29.5 x 28.5in.
