Vintage 1940 Stumpwork Embroidery Pillow Top Primitive Bird Wool Cotton
Oh, here is an endearing embroidered pillow top of two toddler girls in a tug rope tug-a-war. Ma Ma is embroidered at the top so you can imagine the call for help! Dating from the early 1900's the girls are wearing long dresses, bonnets and high button shoes.
Rather a naive embroidery but just charming.
The fabric is a natural linen and it appears this is not a stenciled embroidery but possibly a free hand drawing then embroidered. Fabric still has raw edges.
Size is of fabric is 23" x 24". Unused and never laundered. Colors are still bright.
