Collecting Household Linens

Paperback
Perfect for the experienced collector as well as for the novice, this book covers all the details, beginning with the origins of handmade linens and encompassing afghans, altar cloths, curtains and shade pulls, and bedspreads; subjects which have not been covered before because they have only recently become very collectible. Centerpieces and doilies are probably the best known of household linens because so many were made through the years, and the author makes it easy to identify the many varieties. Other popular areas covered are decorator pillows, napkins, and napkin rings.
