Hungarian Matyo 1920’s Hand Embroidered Oval Floral Pillow Cover with Rusty Red Satin Ruffle

You are looking at a beautiful Hungarian Matyo pillow cover, which dates to the 1920’s. Please note there is no pillow insert.

The hand embroidered work is done in silky thread, and in typical Matyo fashion, the colors are gorgeous. The floral work is done in shades of purple, rusty red, yellow, orange, blue & brown, along with many green leaves.

There is a 1 ½”-1 ¾” rusty red ruffle around the entire pillow. The background & back are done in black sateen/polished cotton. The back has a 10 ½” long opening to insert a pillow. The back of the pillow appears to be a replacement.

The approximate dimensions are: 19” across, without the ruffle & 22” with the ruffle; 14” down, without the ruffle & 17” with the ruffle.

The overall condition is very good, with the following to note: there are a few small areas missing the silky thread (see pic with red flower on left). The small blue oval designs along the outer edge show fading/discoloration (see pic's). This only adds to the vintage look. There are no major stains and no odors.

This is a gorgeous old Hungarian pillow cover, which will certainly enhance any room.
