Tablecloth design, like any other fashion art form, reflected existing tastes and styles of the period. We can use the records of these fashions and moods to generally determine dates. Although in some cases the tablecloths can be assigned to a general decade, as I have done in my book, or even to a specific group of years, the lack of manufacturing records or other cataloguing of these delightful keepsakes makes assigning any one date extremely difficult. For my book, I researched the history of the dyes, copyright & trademark records and poured over vintage catalogs to come up the a “quick reference summary” to help you date your tablecloths.
If you have a restaurant then getting durable tablecloths can save you lots for money. There will be plenty of situations when it will come to your mind of "why didn't I get a durable tablecloth" and some might have already occurred. So, it's better that you get a durable table cloth before the next situation comes by.
