Vintage Cotton European Shams with Drawn Work

Item Number P30210

Large Continental style European shams of crisp whitest white cotton (forgive the dark photos, it was a very rainy day!) are just about perfect and finished with clever drawn work and needlelace corners.  They are just off square, as was common with pieces of this kind.  Curiously, they button on the back in opposite horizontally, one vertically.  My guess is that this was deliberate to tell them apart, as was the slight variation in the hand work at the corners, shown below.

Excellent condition, freshly laundered and pressed.  c.192o's- 1950's  29.5" X 31"
