    'Housewives' can be very hard to ID properly, particularly if also used after the war (like my grandmums one from the ATS- only the scissors and roll were period- everything else had been replaced).

    I can't give you anything concrete, but I would suggest your geuss is correct..... the cloth roll looks about right, in weight and colour, for US types.

    I would agree with Jim. It looks American to me too.

    Yes it is US made.I have one that that is quite similar in style but has a long swallow tail type manufacturers tag on the inside. The tag reads "Style King" and was made in Chicago. The material is a waterproof type. Does this one have that same type of feel to it?
