Vintage and Antique Linens by Em's Heart

Vintage Embroidered Motto Pillowtop

"Her only rivals"

Item Number C24206

 The most fun you can have in a pillowtop, at least today....

This whimsical embroidered piece was likely purchased as a start-to-finish kit that was completed but never made up into a pillow.  "Her only rivals" suggests he's really a good guy at heart, just taken to simple vices that can be easily tolerated...what a commentary on the age of the piece...and so fun!  Course natural linen ground is nicely embroidered with a colorful motto and design that was initially printed in color on the background.  The edges are rough so this could be used in many ways...framed, as a pillow or finished as a centerpiece or doily...a fun piece of vintage Americana.  Offered in excellent condition, as found.  c.1920's - 40's  20.5" X 20.5"
