A lovely pair of Madeira pillowcases in a cutwork embroidery flower basket design.  Unused and stored in a cedar chest.  The cases were a wedding gift to Clark and Arlene Boatright, who were married in September 1940.

In an overtone of blue thread, the cases are a stylized flower basket filled with a blooming flower, buds and leaves.  The design encompass almost the full bottom edge of the front of each case.  A scallop edging border appears on both the front and back of cases.  Height of the flower basket is 8" tall.  Fabric is a sturdy cotton or cotton - linen blend.   Overall size is 35" long x 20-3/4" wide.  One of the cases still has a small paper label of 21.

As the vintage cases have been stored, never used, you will find age related oxidation from storage.   I am quite sure a good soaking, washing and ironing the cases would be spectacular.  

Ideal for a gift.
