-White thread with additional decoration in red, white, blue and yellow thread embroidered on linen. 38" x 31".
-Ever-so-slightly toned with age, otherwise near fine.
Thought to be made by a White House domestic worker about the time of FDR's death in April, 1945, this homey dresser scarf features an embroidered banner with "Mr & Mrs Franklin D. Roosevelt" above a mainly floral motif accented by birds and butterflies. At the center of the motif is a small American flag over the embroidered word "Salves", which basically means "be in good health". An attractive and intimate article associated with the Roosevelt family.
