vintage pair hand-embroidered pillowcases with red & golden yellow roses & hand crochet trim
A pair of vintage (probably 1950s) pillowcases with hand-embroidered roses and hand-crocheted edging. Each measures 21″ wide by 33-1/2″ 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; the crochet thread is a bit brighter. The crochet lace edging features two large floral motifs about 2-1/2″ across at the center with a simpler 1/2″ scallop pattern on the rest of the edging. The embroidered flowers are bright and nicely textured with stem (or outline) stitches plus French knots and buttonhole stitches.
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.
