This Courtauld Gallery tea towel, based on a 1920s textile design, is possibly too beautiful to use on your dishes.
It's based on a textile design from the 1925 Exposition des Arts Decoratifs – the World's Fair that gave us the term 'Art Deco' – and reflects some of the dynamism you'd associate with that movement.The Courtauld have also produced a Tropical Birds design tea towel dating from the same period which is equally striking.
Something of a bargain too at £5. Frame them and get some instant art for your walls.
