In 1945-47 my grandfather, as part of the Marshall plan and representing the US Department of Agriculture, was in Paris and attended [if I remember correctly] the famous Can-Can show at the Lido of Paris, one of the best known shows in Europe. He brought home this souvenir set of 4 small linen bar towels and packed them away. In 1972, knowing I collected erotica, he decided to present them to me, and they have been in my personal erotica collection ever since.
They were never used, and are still as fresh as the day he got them. They have never been washed, and the printing ink shows no deterioration. As I am now in my 70s and in ill health, I am selling off my erotica collection. I hope you like them as much as I do. These will be packed in a flat shipping box and free shipping is included in the 48 states only.
