This was in a cedar chest at an estate, and had been packed away since 1953. Made of old silk scraps, and mostly emroidered with a feather stitch on the seams. Probably 1/4 needs to be embroidered. Pins are still in it, and old newspaper that it had been folded on to keep it neat. Cotton batting is pinned and basted on. Shown in photo it is on a queen size bed with ample hangover on the sides. No holes or rips, as it was never completed, just put away.
Estate find that has been packed away since 1959. This set of great terry cloth kitchen towels are in the original box and packaging that they were in the day they were purchased. (Probably for a wedding gift). They were purchased at the Broadway on 8-31-1959. The original tissue paper and foil seal BROADWAY SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA still on the tissue. Two towels, one is a colorful rooster and the other co-ordinating towel is pots of ivy and kitchen spoons etc...

This is a pretty double doily that would look nice in a long area. It measures 36" long. Its a neat retro turquoise and white with silver metalic thread. It is in the pineapple pattern. There are no stains, tears or damages. I have another listed that would make a nice match for this one.
This is a hand crochet doily white with red roses and contrast. It would look nice on a long table. It measures about 28" long. No snags or bad spots, and no stains. One end looks smaller in the photo, but its not. It was the way I took the photo.
