Antique Linen Show Towel BM Monogram Embroidery

I found this most unusual towel in Italy, in perfect never used condition. I was the first to launder it! The design might be considered Art Deco, considering the zig zags, diamond and triangular shapes of the embroidery, drawn work, and needle lace. The beautiful BM monogram is in a deco design with embellishments forming a diamond shape. The nicely padded embroidery is done by the older hand guided machine and is of good quality. The linen is a light to medium weight in a creamy color, and the sides have the tiniest hand stitched hem. There are a few dropped slubs, which are often found in vintage linen. It measures 33" X 23". This would make a fine gift for a bride!
