Here is a wonderful later 19th century patriotic Americana towel. The fringe towel is unused, still with handwritten price/stock.  Made of linen damask, in an off white or more natural color, the motif is a moon (or sun) with a ring of stars surrounding.  

The border on either end of the towel are printed in red and blue with the stars /moon motif.  A band of narrow red and blue stripes give prominence to this motif.  Hand knotted fringe just adds to the beauty.  Attached is a hand written note "From Grandma Myers, mamma's mother."

Size is 38" long, including the 3-1/4" fringe.  Width is 19-3/4" wide.  Condition is good for the age.  Unused. Some oxidation from storage.   

Although what research I have done, without finding, this towel could be souvenir of the 1876 Centennial which was held in Philadelphia
