Absolutely eye catching colors on this metal mesh purse! The color is like carnival glass – it reflects light differently, purple, blue, green. Purse is the perfect size for an evening out (when you don’t want to be bothered with a larger purse) and it’s great for makeup or cash. Measures 4 ¼” tall, 4 ¼” long, 1” wide (at bottom). I don’t believe it has ever been used and when I purchased, it was in a Neiman-Marcus box but doesn’t have tag/label identifying it as such...
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

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.
These are very pretty handkerchiefs, unused, and still in their original box! Both are white, one has embroidered and drawn work flower design, the other is white with embroidered edging. Beautiful hankies, great gift!
Beautiful set of 3 fancy white handkerchiefs! In their original “Sundew” box, 2 hankies have the same lace edges while the third one is different. These are in excellent condition and would be lovely wedding handkerchiefs!

Jeannette Glass Company’s iridescent Floragold items are so pretty! Made in the 1950’s, there are 4 pieces in this listing – a creamer, sugar with lid, covered butter, and a scalloped oval candy with 4 feet. All pieces are in excellent condition.
Very pretty Lefton birds wall plaque still in its original box! Measures 8 ¼” long, 5 1/8” wide and is white with 2 gold finches and lots of very detailed applied rose buds. Has a bisque type finish. Doesn’t appear to have ever been used – the hang wire isn’t even unfolded – has Lefton red and gold foil/paper sticker. Nice.
Very nice set of Pyrex mixing bowls! These are white with the early American design in brown. Bowl sizes: 1 ½ pint, 1 ½ quart, and 2½ quart. Excellent condition – no chips, dings, or cracks!
Beautiful aluminum tumblers! There are 8 in this listing, measure 4 ½” tall, and are unmarked. The colors are extra nice: red, purple, light gold, spring green, teal/blue, silver, dark green, and a pumpkin color. In excellent condition – the gold one has what appears to be water/soap spotting but I’m not certain – it could be production but is not detrimental. Very nice!

Another beautiful aluminum listing – this one has 8 colorful bowls! They measure 2” tall, 5 ¾” diameter and are unmarked. I don’t believe these have ever been used – the very minor marks are from storage/stacking. Colors are outstanding: purple, electric blue, pumpkin, light gold, bright red, pink, spring green, and green. Super items!
