Vintage Linen

"She was no homespun girl. She was linen, silk and taffeta, and loved the finer things in life..."


Vintage Linen Dresser Scarf with Lace Trim

Linen, made from the natural fibre of flax, is one of the most beautiful textiles ever. After many years of use it only takes on a more beautiful patina of age. Beautiful vintage linens make an elegant addition to any home, and are surprisingly sturdy. 

I have always loved scouring estate sales and flea markets collecting beautiful vintage linens and textiles. Use them for table settings, on dressers, and anywhere you need a special touch of elegance.


This vintage dresser scarf or doily, c. 1920-1940, is white linen with a pale pink lace edging added. It measures 12-1/2" x 28-1/2". Very fine vintage condition. Available from Marie Minnich Design. Visit my Etsy shop at:
