About this title

Synopsis:

Sweet strawberries, bold florals, grandma's kitchen plaid, and state souvenir tablecloths: these are some of the images in this comprehensive reference guide for everyone who loves vintage linens. A wonderful, thoroughly researched pictorial reference guide with over 500 striking photographs of vintage tablecloths, period advertising and packaging, up-to-date values, and detailed captions. Organized by decades, the book covers the history of the printed tablecloth from the 1700s to the 1950s, and presents the social and political influences on period designs and styles. It includes sections on how to date your tablecloths, spotting reproductions, and information about major manufacturers. There are ideas for crafts you can make with your vintage linens, too. It is the ultimate tribute to the exuberant and creative spirit of the American tablecloth manufacturer. An invaluable, must-have resource for linen, tablecloth, and vintage textile collectors, interior designers, or anyone else interested in vintage linens.

About the Author:

Pamela Glasell is a collector and seller of vintage linens who enjoys adding to her personal collection of over 400 tablecloths. She resides in southern California with her husband and two children.
