Pennsylvania Homespun Linen Show Towel
- These Pennsylvania towel were hand made by young women to show their skills to manage their own household after they were married, and would have hung on a door for all to see.
- This one was made by Esther Baum, and is dated 1834.
- Birds, hearts all our favorite motifs.
- Fairly faded and some wear, some dastardly person used this to dry their hands. What was he thinking? Tiny bit of dye run, see pic.
- Measures 14" x 48".
