A gorgeous Victorian or Edwardian bolster layover pillow sham topper, featuring lovely needlework. A light and airy floral motif of scrolls and flowers dominate this bolster. Featuring Appenzell whitework embroidery with drawn thread and cutwork.
A pretty drawn thread border, of 3/8" wide, on one long end and the two short ends, gives the bolster a finishing touch. Made of a nice quality metis fabric (blend of linen and cotton) is soft to the touch.
The overall size of the bolster is 35" wide x 106" long. Big enough for a king size bed. The needle work is 37" high at the center by 20" long.
Condition is very good. A couple small dots of oxidation is all I found.
