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.

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.

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
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...
This is a beautiful beaded evening bag! It is shell shaped and is covered with navy blue and iridescent beads. Has silver color metal frame and long (shoulder style) chain – the chain can be folded inside so purse becomes a clutch. As often happens with this design, it has been closed on the chain causing a couple rough places about ½” from where it attaches to purse. Handbag is in very good condition – all beads are present. Has Marshall Fields tag and a handmade in China tag...
This is an excellent handbag! Made by Ingber, it’s navy color cloth (wool blend) with a classic shape and elegant styling. Measures 9 ½” x 8 ¾” and is 2 ½” wide (at bottom). Has navy blue cloth interior with change purse and a small zippered compartment. I don’t believe this purse has ever been used – it’s in new condition!
Another exceptional handbag – brown lizard! Purse is in wonderful condition with a nice shape and size. Measures 7 ¼” tall, 7 ½” long, 2 7/8” wide (at bottom) and has 1 handle. Interior is light gray/off white color and is clean with no rips or tears. Exterior of bag is also in wonderful condition. Super!
What a neat purse! It’s red leather with 2 leather handles, measures 10” long, 3 ½” wide, 4 ¼” tall. Has black cloth interior (clean and intact) with zippered center.

This is the largest Gurley candle I’ve seen and it’s in the original box! Shaped like a lamp post, measures 12 ¼” tall, and has the original cardboard base/label. Candle is 2 pieces – the post part and the lantern part. Box is in wonderful condition – the cellophane covering has come unglued. Candle has overheated during storage and now leans slightly – could possibly be warmed and straightened but is presentable as is and displays great! An excellent find.
