Sunday Market Find

I found these two wonderful posters today at the Sunday Antique Market. They were hand printed in England on linen, as is stated in the corner. On one the words, 'A Dodo Design', appear in the other corner. The size is 19 x 33 inches. They are each mounted to masonite board.

By the colors used I assume these are from the 1960's. The hot pink/orange combination and pop art stylization are very typical of the swinging sixties in London. I have researched online and found there was a Dodo design poster shop in London in the 60's. They still seem to be active so I have emailed the pictures to see if, in fact, they are from that source.

I naturally bought them as an addition to my Etsy shop. Since I have had to wait to determine their value however... I am growing more and more attached to them. I find myself contemplating how I would frame them; where to hang them in the house...

I think they are tea towels.

No, they are not tea towels. They are not that size or type of thing- although, I did wonder at first...
