I have had this apron in my collection for a very long time and it is a real find. This historical apron is from the 1890 Cotton Centenary printed in red, white & blue with stars. Apron was manufuctured by Dunnel Mfg Co for distribution at the Cotton Centary of 1890 in Pawtucket, R.I. These aprons were made to commenorate the 100th anniversary (1790-1890) of Samuel Slater's cotton spinning machinery at old Slater Mill. Apron features print of Old Slater Mill, Samuel Slater, flags, as well as bands of red, & blue with stars. Visit The Gatherings for more details on this item.
