This beautiful vintage Australia marine linen tea towel, designed by Lamont, shows the aquatic playground that lies beneath the waters of Australia’s shorelines. Depicting a 1960s font and illustrations, the tea towel was made in Ireland of pure Irish linen. It appears to have been used perhaps a handful of times, but the colours are still strong and there’s no wear or holes to the fabric. There are some slight discolouration spots, as shown in photos. A beautiful piece of vintage Australiana.
