Aprons Crisp



Recently I received four aprons that I purchased off of eBay as an ever-growing part of my vintage apron collection. They were in excellent condition. For about $10.00 I received four pristine vintage aprons. It doesn't look like they have ever been worn. One even had the original price tag still on it. They are delicate in appearance, but the fabrics are crisp and stable. After washing and ironing they are as good as new! The fabrics are similar to dotted-swiss, but some are striped rather than dotted. I was happy to add them to my growing collection of vintage aprons and am now researching them so that I can date them and find their place in history.
