Superb Antique French Pillowcases





Anything fabricy (especially old linens and antique/vintage fabrics) has always been my first love. Antique French bed- and table linens are just about the most beautiful pieces you can get. These pillowcases are truly exquisite. They measure approx. 80cm square including the trim ( approx. 69cm square inner measurement ).

The trim is beautiful. Completely hand stitched whitework embroidery in a gorgeous deeply scalloped design. But thats not all. The monogram ( approx 7cm high ) is absolutely fabulous. It is worked with the finest thread and is incredibly dainty. The pillowcases fasten with mother-of-pearl buttons of course. I have two matching pillowcases available.
