  • Pattern: Spirit of '76

  • This is a very appropriate kitchen towel for your 4th of July Celebration.  It has a printed image by Kay Dee, which we're calling Spirit of '76, based on the original painted by Archibald MacNeal Willard in 1875. The towel has a 1976 calendar, and it was probably part of the bicentennial decoration. The bottom is printed with: "Dakin Farms", might have been an advertisement customer gift / giveaway, promotional item for that store.  also printed is: "Hand Printed by Kay Dee".  It has an opening on top to insert a wooden dowel if you wish to display it with one.  Looks like this towel has been used as decor, there are no signs of laundering and the colors are still very bright, however, there are a couple of small stains, most likely from long term storage, see Condition below.  These are machine washable but will need to be ironed since it is linen.  Perfect symbol of Americana and perfect for decor.  
  • Materials:  Linen
  • Dimensions:  30.0 inches Long and 17.5 inches Wide 
  • Condition:  Vintage - Used.  Very Good Vintage Condition.  There are two very small stains, one on top and one on the left side margin, we did not launder this towel, these will most likely wash out if treated, but we make no guarantees.  We photographed them both for you.  Please review all pictures and make sure you love this item before purchasing, we can't accept returns.  All sales final.  Please remember these are ANTIQUE and VINTAGE items, they are NOT new, every effort has been made to show any scratches, wear and tear and imperfections.
