Vintage and Antique Linens by Em's Heart

           Monogrammed Drawn Lace Antique

           Victorian Layover Shams, "E"

 Item Number P17606

Elaborate cutwork and drawn lace layover shams will stop you in your tracks (look down, sit down, take a breath) ...these are amazing to behold, better in person.  Frothy, feminine, foo foo, frilly...well, not frilly, but certainly over-the-top amazing, these white antique linen layover shams no doubt took many many days to complete.  Two elaborate vine-like cutwork borders alternate with a deep Venetian drawnwork row that finishes in each corner with a Victorian spider-web form, a symbol of good luck, if I remember correctly.   The two borders surround the center cutwork monogram "E" -- ok.  Now you can breathe. 

Stunning to behold...and even more so when laid over your pillows.  I do believe these would finish a bed made up with an antique matelasse -- can you see it in your mind's eye?  Oh MY!  A worn area in one corner and one or two other tiny holes are the only flaws.   Freshly laundered and pressed, in amazing condition, as described.  c.1890 -- 1910 26.5" X 28.5"
