Black Dogwood Flowers | Pristine Dogwood Flowers on Black Unused Wilendur Vintage Tablecloth Fabric Piece — Design #2 — 17 x 17 Inches
THIS IS NOT A WHOLE TABLECLOTH. It is a single motif from a vintage tablecloth. The listing is for a 17-inch by 17-inch piece from a Wilendur vintage tablecloth in a rare design that features dogwood blossoms on a black background. The piece can be used as a pillow front, for other projects, or even framed. Details are:
~ The 1st photo shows the actual and entire piece. The flowers are not bright white but more of a creamy, slightly off-white shade.
~ The tablecloth was never used and laundered only once. The piece is in pristine, mint condition with rich, deep, crisp colors. There are no flaws or blemishes.
~ Wilendur tablecloths are 100% cotton tightly-woven fabric similar to but lighter in weight than sailcloth.
~ Most Wilendur tablecloths with large motifs had two different styles of the design on each tablecloth. The piece in this listing is one of the two styles on this dogwood tablecloth. The other design may be available in the shop in a different listing.
~ Wilendur tablecloths are the "gold standard" in vintage tablecloths, by which all other vintage tablecloths are judged. The Wilendur brand was made by The Weil & Durrsè Company, which was headquartered in the New York City garment district. In the introduction to her book "Elegant Table Linens" by Michelle Hayes (which is the Wilendur “bible”), Michelle Hayes writes:
"Those who fall in love with vintage linens are grateful that the Weil & Durrsè Company created artistic designs with brilliant rich colors and exquisite shading on quality fabric. Their famous Wilendur brand is the benchmark for all others. The linens produced by Weil & Durrsè are the most sought after and desired of all the printed vintage household cloths. This was no accident. Weil & Durrsè stated on many of their labels: 'Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution.' "
I do my very best to accurately describe each piece of fabric I sell, but please remember that this piece is a cut from a vintage tablecloth.
Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. I am always happy to provide additional information about my items.

Shipping & policies
On purchases of multiple items, Etsy calculates combined shipping when purchases are made on the same invoice (all items in a cart at once), but the amount is not always correct. I refund shipping overcharges of more than $1.00 immediately following shipment.
If a buyer wishes to have an order shipped to an address other than the buyer's address, the shipping address must be entered during the checkout process. Specifying a different address by convo or message is not sufficient to permit me to ship to that address. If an address changed is requested, I will refund and cancel the order, and ask the buyer to repurchase using the correct shipping address, in compliance with the Etsy Seller Protection Policy.
I no longer ship internationally to any country. Shipping is to U.S. addresses only.
I accept payment through Paypal via Paypal balance, credit card, or direct bank transfer, or through Etsy payments. I do not accept eCheck payments. I do not offer layaway services or installment payment plans.
Returns & exchanges
I accept returns only if I have made a mistake in the listing or an item otherwise is not as described in the listing, as long as the return is postmarked within 3 business days of receipt and is returned in exactly the same condition as it was received. The buyer must contact me prior to returning any item. Refunds will be issued after the item has been returned.
All of my listings are sold on a first come, first served basis. I do not "hold" or "reserve" items for purchase at a later time.
My prices are the same for everyone. I do not add a cushion to prices to allow for negotiating price or provide for free shipping. I treat all buyers the same and keep my prices as low as possible for everyone, rather than negotiating special prices for individual buyers.
