Outstanding colours in this vintage Australia linen tea towel, never-been-used tea towel depicting Australia that dates to the 1960s. The tea towel, made in Ireland, is tagged as fast colours with the design by Lamont. A boomerang points south towards a map of Australia where, strangely, the ACT and Tasmania are missing! Canberra’s Old Parliament House however makes an appearance in the bottom half of the design, along with kangaroos, koalas, banksia and waratah flowers. A beautiful piece of vintage Australiana.
