SOLD Victorian Sham Layover Pillow Cover Italian Whitework Embroidery Drawnwork Saying Motto
Dating from the Victorian - early 1900's an embroidered turkey red - redwork pillow sham in a tambour stitch. The sham is a layover type (in otherwords no back). Ruffle completely around the four sides. The motif in the center is a pair of birds with leaves in each of the corners.
Size is 28-1/2" x 32" including the 2" wide ruffle. Condition - a couple of tiny flaws including a pin dot size hole in one of the corner leaves and a couple dots of oxidation.
A small amount of fading to the red embroidery of the birds. All are very minor. A charming piece.
