Would you believe I found even MORE tiny vintage table toppers?Posted: November 12, 2014
I never expect to find vintage tablecloths when I’m thrift shopping, but the past few months have been exceptionally surprising. Would you like to see my newest tiny table toppers?
First up, a bright sailcloth piece with Wilendur-style pattern blocks. (It doesn’t have a pink stain. I took a crummy photo. No one will pin it on Pinterest now.)
Could these be daisies? They have too many petals for cosmos and the wrong sort of leaves for asters. If you know the name of this pattern let me in on the secret!
The next one really is a Wilendur and has a tag to prove it. You’ll have to take my word for it–I didn’t remember to snap a picture.
Hemmed on all four sides, it’s 32 x 34″. I love the sunny yellow but gray roses are a bit grim.
Next up is a Startex in a big red, black and white woven check.
It was cut from 44″ yardage and has only two hems. I thought it was homemade and got surprised when I found the stiff, new tag.
I saved my favorite for last. It’s homemade out of muslin and is sprinkled with small stains. I haven’t tried getting them out yet.
Look closely and you’ll find basting stitches that were never removed.
I suppose some of the fabric could be feedsacks or scraps of clothing. The black outlining embroidery is so 1930s-1940s.
What do you think: are these kitchen towels or card table toppers?
