They were definitely used for Christmas dinner and tea, and I seem to remember (though I may be wrong) that they were also used for non-school lunch on OB Day and Speech Day. Perhaps they were the same cloths that we see being laid in this picture. If they were almost never used, they would have lasted.

I'm sure you are right.
