Huge lot of vintage cotton towels from the 1940s, packed away for about 70 years! These came right out of an estate, it was a collection of hope chest linens, mostly if not all never used.
Please see below for the photo showing the box in which we found these, it was lined in newspapers from the mid-40s. Box not included, it's dirty and very fragile. But we thought you'd like to see it!
The towels are assorted brands and styles, bath towels and hand towels, all white with colored trim. We haven't attempted to match these up as sets at all. (There's 30 bath towels and 4 hand towels.)
They're much smaller and lighter than most modern towels, as you can see as they're folded. Most of the bath towels measure about 40" x 20".
Condition isn't anything like perfect, as many of these have quite a bit of yellowing, or soil from storage. They haven't been laundered, we're selling them just as found.
