Antique Baptiste Hand Towels Monogrammed MD

Antique Baptiste Hand Towels Monogrammed MD

The ultimate in refinement, this magnificent set of three decorative guest hand towels will add a touch of grace and elegance to any powder room! Loomed of a superb pure white linen batiste - a rare luxury in hand towels - each piece is impeccably embroidered at one end with a central monogram, "MD," the letters fine yet boldly achieved in an important relief of bourdon. Both width-wise borders are adorned with three rows of drawn thread embroidery, a delicate and lacy crossed drawn thread row in the center and two smaller rows of ladderwork above and below, and each extremity terminates with a four inch long and lustrous linen fringe. Likely dating from the latter part of the 19th century, these superb hand towels are in impeccable, as-new condition! Dimensions: 35 x 26.5in. plus 4in. fringe at each extremity
