Antique Italian Linen Pillowcases

Embroidered Sempre Uniti

Item Number P14105

Romance and resolve form the basis of this Italian motto, Sempre Uniti meaning Always United or Together Always -- a perfect sentiment for these antique Italian linen pillowcases.  These were no doubt part of a wedding trousseau and like so many pieces of the period, were put away and never used because of their special significance and beauty.  I was so fortunate to come across this set at a recent sale.  The embroidery incorporates vines, flowers and cutwork details to form a wreath around the embroidered words.  Ends are neatly scalloped.  A wee bit of age and a light gray spot shown below remain after the first wash but will launder with use.  Need I say, a perfect gift for newly weds?  Creamy white linen will lighten to white.  Excellent, unused condition, freshly laundered and pressed.  c.1900 - 1915   21" X 32.5"
