A superb piece of artistry and what a pity there is only one pillow case.
The case is in heavy linen and has superb Richelieu edging.
Around the inner border is open thread work.
It would have had possibly initials, but on the other hand it does not need it as the edgings make up for the loss
ideal as a throw on the bed or just as a single pillow on a beautiful period chair.
P.S. There is in the same auction a pair of these.
