Huge Antique Italian Linen Lace and Fringed Towel
$120.00 Includes Shipping and Handling

This wonderful hand loomed antique towel from an Italian estate would have been used for bath, and can also be used for a runner, draped over a chair, or whatever your imagination suggests. The linen is lightweight and so drapey, in the wonderful old weave with a continuous border around all 4 sides, with beautiful fringed lace on EACH end! . There are 2 small pin holes and a small mended hole, quite remarkable for an "everyday" piece of this age! It measures 32" x 60"! The incredible hand knotted lace is 5" and fringe is 3"!. Sold as found,clean and pressed but slightly wrinkled, from my feeble photo attempts! THERE IS ANOTHER 59" X 30",PERFECT CONDITION,FRINGE HAS KNOTTING-INQUIRE IF INTERESTED BEFORE I GET IT LISTED.
