Table of Contents

508 photos!

This comprehensive, illustrated survey explores the more common linens and fabrics once carefully stored in American linen closets and hope chests and proudly spread on tables and in neatly made up bedrooms.

More than 500 color photographs illustrate these diverse and colorful areas of collecting, ranging from intricate and detailed samplers, embroidery, and tatting, to simple but elegant pieces such as hand towels and splashers; pillow cases, shams and bolsters; quilts and coverlets; rugs; scarves and runners; sheets and blankets; tablecloths; and tray and teacart cloths. You'll even find early factory-made fabrics, a breakthrough for homemakers of the time.

Helpful, creative tips on caring for old and damaged pieces, as well as new ideas for decorating with them, are also included. Written for both the novice antiquer and the experienced dealer! Collecting More Household Linens is a wonderful guide to the linens found decorating our homes for decades.
