Collectable vintage potholders have many designs, with one popular style being floral prints or dimensional flowers sent in the center of the piece. These attractive potholders were embellished with a variety of flower types, including roses, daisies and peonies. There isn’t a lot of history available for the floral potholders except the designs were popular from about 1945 through 1960. Women took great pride in how their kitchen looked and functioned. Potholders met both of those needs. The floral designs were attractive and often were made to match the other décor of the room, yet sturdy enough for everyday use. The designs have an intricate, lace appearance and were made in many different styles.
