An Affair Of The Heart ~ Society Silk Embroidery Of The 1900's

February 14th is Valentine's Day.  So to celebrate, The Gatherings Antique Vintage thought we would share this wonderful textile from the past. 

Dating from the early 1900's, it is a silk thread embroidery pillow cover, with motto "An Affair Of The Heart". Surrounding the heart are purple violets.  An ever popular flower.   Embroidery is worked on a cotton fabric of a natural or cream color.. Size of the cover is 17-1/2" wide x 18-1/2". Cover has been used but very nice condition. So, indeed, a wonderful society silk embroidery.
