This listing consists of two pairs of Royal seamed nylons. Stockings have reinforced heels and toes and are in a very pretty dark taupe color. They are "Party Sheers". For added protection, I have placed them in a Neumode hosiery vintage box. Exceptional stockings!
Excellent nylons by Dolly Madison! There are 3 pairs -- individually packaged and in the original box! These have "Run Stop Top and Toe, Seamless, 400 Needle, 100% Nylon, RN14733". The color is taupe, size is 8 1/2. Very nice!
Neat items -- 2 pairs of thigh (elastic top) fishnet stockings! Both pairs are black and have seams. Never worn -- these are old store stock that I purchased at an estate sale. Don't miss these -- they're great!!
This listing has "new" old store stock -- Van Raalte stockings! These are not sheer stockings (see photo), they DO have seams and have a beautiful design at the ankle that goes up the leg about 6" (reminds me of fishnet). Stockings have reinforced heels, toes, and tops. They are stamped on toes: Van Raalte, Matestripe. Original price tag is gently basted to top -- not stick on and not stapled!

These aprons are lovely – there’s a black and white gingham and a brown and white gingham! They are decoratively embellished with what is now simply called cross stitch but when originally stitched on gingham it was called “chicken scratch” (before counted cross stitch!). Aprons are in new, never used condition. Very pretty! See all our vintage linens at our website in the FOR THE LADIES category -- www.lins-antiques.com
For all you collectors of poodle related items, this listing is for you! Listing has a chef poodle kitchen towel, a guest towel with an embroidered poodle, and a poodle apron! The colorful towel shows gray poodles cooking vegetables – this is a “book” piece and can be seen in “Fun Linens & Handkerchiefs of the 20th Century” with a price range of $25-$35. The poodle guest towel (also a book piece) has a hand embroidered fancy gray poodle...

Beautiful Bates chenille bedspread! Per label, this is “George Washington's Choice”. Bedspread is full size (89” x 110” with 3 1/2" fringe) and is in excellent condition.
These napkins are so neat! There’s a set of 6 white with red wine glass and grapes border and centers have sayings such as “He who goes to bed and goes to bed mellow, lives as he ought to, and dies an honest fellow” – all 6 are different. In wonderful condition – a couple have a small yellow spot that should launder right out (I did not pre-soak when I laundered them). Unusual and difficult to find items.
The detail on this kitchen towel is outstanding! It depicts the contents of an old general store in New Harmony Indiana – there’s a pickle barrel, sacks of beans and salt, a barrel of lard, etc. Towel is a Warren Boucher design and it has never been used – still has the “KayDee handprints” paper label. Made of 100% pure linen and measures 30 ½” x 17”. I purchased this towel at an estate sale and it’s a super collectible!
This is a most interesting state hanky! It’s a California hanky but also shows part of Nevada (Reno with broken heart, Las Vegas with dice, Boulder Dam). Most state handkerchiefs for 2 states have both names in equal size letters but this one only mentions Nevada in small letters under Boulder Dam (Nev.). Hanky measures 13 ¾” x 13 ¼” and is in excellent condition – no pinholes, stains, or discoloration – colors are bright. Nice collectible!
Mint condition humorous hanky showing a party animal (elephant) the morning after the party! He wants to know “Who turned out th’ lights?”, “What wuz in that last one?”, as well as “Wish I wuz dead!”. Measures 14” x 14” and is in mint condition. Neat collectible!
Ready for gift giving or to add to a handkerchief collection, this is a clever and attractive display! Still in the original box (apparently never removed) is a paper doll lady (top only) with a hanky folded like a skirt, she “wears” a ribbon stole, and folded neatly on one side of the box are 5 more hankies! I’ve collected hankies for many years and this is the only paper doll hanky lady I’ve seen. Neat collectible.
This listing has 2 pairs of vintage seamless plain stitch stockings and they are in their original package! Made by Fruit of the Loom, these are their “red ribbon” stockings with nude heel. They’re size A, fits 8 ½ to 9 and the color is Café Brown – a rich dark brown color. Per package, originally sold 2 Pair 99 cents -- wow!! Very nice.
This listing has 9 monogrammed “R” men’s handkerchiefs! All are white cotton with monograms in blue, brown, and gray. Hankies are 3 per box with 2 of the boxes being identical, the 3rd is a different manufacturer and monogram design is a little different. Very nice!
This listing has “3 fine quality handkerchiefs” in their original box! Unopened so I’m not certain of hanky size but package shows a young man with a hanky in his blazer pocket. Hankies are white and each has a different fancy stitched design. Nice!
Another very nice men’s handkerchief listing! This one has 2 white cotton hankies with “T” monogram. They are in their original package with paper band around them – “Peerless Handkerchiefs, Hand Loom Embroidery, Rolled Hem”. Monograms have different styling than usually found.
These Easter cards with handkerchiefs are so neat! I have 2 different ones in this listing. One card has “Happy Easter” with bluebirds at a birdbath and the other has “At Easter” with a cute puppy amid spring flowers. Each card has a small coordinating sachet – they have lost their scent but could be refreshed with a drop or two of your favorite perfume...
