Vintage 1950s Linen Tea Towel with Blue Grapes Pink Wheat
Throughout history, wheat has symbolized abundance, rebirth, fertility and new life - all good words to help stimulate creativity in the kitchen...
Bright with color, this vintage linen tea towel features a unique bouquet of fruit, ivy and wheat stalks in shades of pink, blue, celery and lemon. How summery!
A fun addition to the linen closet, if you are a fan of vintage pyrex (think cornflower blues) or brightly colored airbrushed enamelware from the 1940s and 1950s then this towel would be a lovely companion to such a collection since it features similar color patterns.
Wheat is not that uncommon a symbol in the kitchen. Its imagery appears often on dishes and kitchenware especially in golden shades most beloved for autumn entertaining. But when the wheat appears in pink colors, that's a bit more unusual. Popular more so in the 1950s than any other decade, pink wheat could be found on glassware, dishes, vases, tablecloths and even wall decorations, adding a touch of pastel charm to a traditional earthy subject matter.
Sized at 29x15, this tea towel can moonlight as a dish towel, a display piece, a bar cart linen and even a small table runner depending on your styling preference. Like the summer season itself, it's pretty easy breezy when it comes to incorporating it into real kitchen life. Just like its unique imagery, it inspires unique styling options too.
