The Butler and The Maid

Here's my latest estate sale needlework find.  I am soooo happy!  A set of two adorable appliquéd and embroidered tea towels:

I was assuming the short skirt on the maid would place them in the 1950s, even though the fabrics and color palette seem more 1940s to me.  But I scouted around on google, and found a couple of 1940s ads and one tablecloth in clearly a 1940s palette that have knee-length skirted maids.  

Meet James and Monique:
