Very nice large decorative towel with fringed ends. It has a cut design in the two color plush terrycloth, it looks like it could be an abstract mermaid or a water maiden, or sea nymph with tree and plants around her.
This towel is a light bright blue and a very, very light ivory. The colors are reversed on the other side.
They were found packed in an old cedar chest with many linens, towels and lingerie that still had labels on them.
I have washed the towels.
CONDITION - Excellent condition, unused. No flaws seen other than a few teeny faint age spots. It is just a little frazzled on the ends of the fringe.
