Go Electric 1950/60s Tea Towel
£12.95 plus P&P: £0.00
THANK YOU - this item has been added to your basket!
This is a fabulous vintage cotton tea towel. Almost certainly produced for the Electricity Board to promote the use of electric washing machines in the home - a new and exciting idea in the 1950/60s, and something many could only aspire to! Washing with electric was a cleaner and quicker way to do the weekly wash for the modern housewife. This collectable tea towel would look lovely framed in a bathroom or kitchen, don't you think? Or simply hang it on a baton or dowel to make alovely wall feature.
