An early homespun apron in red, white and blue check fabric, dates from the 1890's or 1900's. A wonderful long apron with hand embroidery tambour needle lace, at the hem line and across the top of the single pocket. The embroidery work is filled with loops and scrolls in a very pleasing design. Width of this lovely work is about 7" wide. The patch pocket is also a charmer, with its gathered bottom, which adds a nice accent to the pocket area.
Condition of the apron is very nice. Measurement: 34-1/2" long, from the waist to hem. Width across the waist front is 23". Apron ties are 22" long.
Nice addition to farmhouse primitive kitchen.
