A gorgeous pair of hand embroidery Madeira pillowcases, in nice condition, dating from about 1930's or 1940's. The lovely fancy work is in a silver tone embroidery of a handled basket overflowing with trailing flowers.

The profuse use of french knots sets the stage, incorporated with pulled, drawn thread needlework.  A delightful display, so pleasing to the eye.  Scallop edge on both front and back of cases. 

The beautiful work is just on the front of cases about 7-1/2" in height x 13" wide at the base of the hem. Pure cotton fabric in a fine batiste.  

Although nice you will find some oxidation from storage and should be laundered to freshen. I noticed at the one corner (on the back)a few pin holes. No harm.  This is practically in the seam.   Size is 19-1/2" wide x 35" long.

Perfect touch for decorating a romantic bedroom.
