Vintage and Antique Linens by Em's Heart
Antique Linen Lawn Pillowcases
Deep Ruffles, Hand Sewn
Item Number P22607
Antique finest linen lawn pillow sham is fabulously finished with densely gathered ruffles....Fine, whitest linen is drapey and silky to touch. Two small dots of age, shown below, are the only flaws. Most seams are stitched by hand with teeny tiny regular stitching that could cause blindness or hysteria if attempted by a modern seamstress....best to buy this rather than risk it, don't you think??
Deep, dense ruffles bring to mind the saucy femininity of Victorian "good girls" with equally overstated petticoats that made a girl feel beautiful even though they were hidden from view. This piece, however, was meant to be seen and enjoyed....a true feminine delight. Back is finished with hand sewn button holes and old shell buttons...I didn't iron the back, oops! Sweet embroidery and hand triple monogram, "GNL" are beautifully done. A confection for your eyes and your fingertips...Excellent condition as described, freshly laundered and pressed. c.1880's - 1920's 32.5" X 33" diameter including 4" ruffles
