Seller: halnanne (3,183) 100% Top-Rated Plus, Location: Newark, Delaware, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 153023576094 I buy vintage linens at local estate auctions to pass them along to you. I just acquired three amazing embroidered pillow covers. This is an antique pillow cover. It is a square measuring 17" square, not including a 1.5" lace ruffle all around. This is a complete double layer with one side open at the top; there is a closure with 9 small fabric-covered buttons that close with loops, as shown. There is a 0.5" spacer along the edges between the two layers, thus two lace ruffles. The cover is made of fine batiste, somewhat transparent. The back is plain, and the front has an embroidered border of roses that is a bit wider than 2" all around the edges. The rose blossoms and the leaves are very raised and textured and include areas of drawnwork - just exquisite. In the center there is a large monogram of the letters MV about 7.5" wide and 6" high, with highly detailed and textured embroidery. This is topped with a crown 2.5" wide. The embroidery is breathtaking. Please use the zoom function to check all the details. I carefully hand washed and pressed this, and found the fabric to be sound, soft and strong and not brittle. It came up nicely white, but there is some damage on the front to the left of center: there's a tan stain and some breaks in the fabric, as shown in closeup in the last photo. It comes close but does not touch the center embroidery. Despite these flaws of age, this is a great example of antique handiwork. I am storing this in my smoke-free home, but I do have a cat who sheds copiously, so be aware if you have allergies. Please contact me for more information or photos. I am happy to combine items to save on shipping, so check my other listings too. Thanks for looking! Condition: antique pillow cover w amazing fine quality embroidery - please see full description, pillow sham type: square, double layer w button closure, fabric: fine batiste, decoration: double layer lace edging, monogram: large script letters MV under crown
