This vintage cotton pillowcase is embroidered with a Southern Belle design: a girl in bonnet and full hoop skirt holding a flower basket. A garland of pastel flowers is embroidered over the entire scene.
This type of pillowcase was designed to have crocheted ruffles at the bottom of the girl's dress and extending all the way around the opening to form the edging. The embroidery work has all been done (and done very well by the way). All that's needed is the crochet work. Or if you don't crochet, you can achieve a similar effect with sewn-on lace. The pillowcase is 35" by 20-1/2". In very good condition with no stains, tears, or damage.
Specializing in antique and vintage Christmas all year round, plus antique to Mid-Century copper.
