The sweet young bride of today chooses Bates spreads for their 1939 style-rightness. She finds that they are just what she has been looking for to top off her beds - to put the chic finishing touch to the decoration of her bedrooms. Her mother a bride of the War period, and her grandmother, a bride of the Gay Nineties, chose Bates spreads too. They too chose them for their smartness - and for their beauty, quality, and durability. And the new Bates Fine Percale Sheets offer the bride of 1939 the cool, almost silky smoothness of truly luxurious percales at prices that will fit smoothly into the most unassuming bridal budget.

The unaffected charm of this cotton spread makes it perfect for almost any type of bedroom. To choose 'Daisy Chain' is to pay gracious tribute to your (?) of economy. Reversible, (?) Colors: Sky Blue, Dusty Rose, Tan, Green, Brown, and Wine."
