vintage pair blue Madeira embroidery & cutwork pillowcases
A pair of vintage (probably 1950s) pillowcases with lovely blue Madeira embroidery and lacy open cutwork. Each measures 20-1/2″ wide by 32-1/2″ long and will fit a standard pillow.
These have been stored for years and appear to have never been used. The cotton fabric is nearly white with the embroidery worked in a pale, almost periwinkle blue thread. The scalloped edging is worked in a very small, tight buttonhole stitch. The embroidered area is about 6″ high at the center and 13″ wide.
A lovely, very useable gift for anyone who loves needlework and vintage textiles! Machine wash on the gentle cycle (hot water can be used) without bleach for many years of delight.
