Charlotte Posner Spitalfields Mantua tea towel
Created exclusively for Historic Royal Palaces, this exquisite 100% cotton tea towel features a vivacious design by the contemporary British female artist Charlotte Posner in her signature Pop Dolls style. The tea towel displays a vibrant multicoloured image of a diva in the Spitalfields Mantua court gown, with towering headdress and de rigeur celebrity sunglasses, posing in the formal gardens at the entrance to Kensington Palace, and bearing the artist's signature in gold. The inscription reads "Crown to Couture" in elegant white typeface against a powder blue background. A wonderfully collectable item to add a touch of VIP fashionista allure to your home.
The stunning Spitalfields Mantua, currently on display at the Crown to Couture exhibition, was made in the famous Spitalfields area of East London, where families of weavers created gorgeous brocaded silk. The fabric of the Spitalfields Mantua is very complex, with flower motifs woven into the brocaded silk rather than embroidered on to the highly decorative white silk background.
Part of the Crown to Couture range where the glittering world of the Georgian court comes head-to-head with the high glamour of the modern-day red carpet in a new exhibition at Kensington Palace.
