Fruited Tablecloth

 This was a little treat to myself last time I went antique shopping. It was a little more expensive then I like to pay for tablecloths, but it is in excellent shape and gorgeous. I couldn't pass it up!
Don't you love the fruit? In case you haven't noticed, I adore fruit. I find it very interesting that all the fruit is red. Maybe it was cheaper to print just one color or thought it looked better. Fruit tablecloths were very popular in the 1940s and 50s. I think this one is from the 50s, as tablecloths from the 40s generally were in bright primary colors.
