Vintage Laundry Bag with Embroidered Scottie Dogs Adorable
Want to add something special to your Laundry Room? Well this next offering may be just what you are looking for! This unique Laundry Bag is so cheerful looking and the Scottie dogs could not be any more precious boasting personality plus!
The material used to fashion this bag consists of flax and cotton toweling. Back in the day, 1930's to 1940's, you could purchase a bolt of this type of fabric and just cut it to size, off the bolt, when you needed more towels for the kitchen. The weave is tight but very strong and durable too. This pattern almost mimics a ticking stripe except the stripes are larger.
There is some minor fraying at the bottom as shown in image 18 and also near the top right and left areas as well as the bottom portion of the front opening. A couple of spots can be seen, one on the front, near the dog see images 5, 10 & 11 and also located at the edge of both the right and left hand side shown in images 21 & 22. There is a faint water mark depicted in the form of a circle on the back, towards the left hand side.
The fabric has consistent strong colors throughout but have seasoned to a muted tangerine orange, soft cheddar and buttermilk. This piece is in very good condition for it's age! The edge is done in a sort of piping and was machine sewn. Near the bottom just below the Scottie dog on the right, there is a very small slit near the piping as referenced in image 16.
The two Scottie dogs were sewn on a kitty corner position and seem to be facing each other with fond regard. They each sport a red bow with tiny black dots in the center as shown in images 6 & 15. One is holding a pen and lends an anthropomorphic stance as he spells out the word "Hankies" and he even spelled it correctly! Good boy! He almost looks like he is trying to gain approval for this effort from the other dog who seems to be very disinterested as his eyes are focused on something else. The stitching is expertly done and black thread was the color choice used to execute this whimsical theme. The words, "Hankies & Socks" are also stitched up using turkey red thread as an accent.
A small slit in the front is provided for items that need to be laundered. The hanger is also included with the bag. What a great piece that would take center stage in your Laundry Room and will provide sheer happiness to an otherwise dismal task! Enjoy!
The bag measures almost 21" Tall & 16" across.
