Vintage souvenir pillow sham with Remembrance poem. This vintage pillow cover was probably purchased by a boy in the armed forces on leave and thinking of those he left at home. Popular in the 1940s and 1950s, this pillow sham features navy blue satin fabric flocked with a gold design and the words "Remember Me" along with a sweet poem. The decorative pillow case is bordered with gold and red binding and red silk thread fringe.
Inscription: REMEMBER ME It is sweet To be remembered When you're feeling Sad and blue. It sets the pulse A=throbbing: And it cheers The heart up too It makes the world Worth living To be remembered Just by you.
This flocked pillow cover is blue navy blue satin on the front and a light pink satin on the back. It is in good vintage condition. There is a stain on the back (see photos) and some light wear to the flocking on the front and the fringe is intact. There are some creases from being folded for many years but there is no yellowing or discoloration along the folds and they could be steamed out or will lessen when a pillow form is inserted. The throw pillow cover measures approximately 17 inches square excluding the fringe. The fringe adds approximately 2 inches around the border. The pillow sham has a wide opening at the bottom for inserting the pillow form. The form does not come with the pillow case but one can easily be purchased at any home goods or big box store.
A sweet vintage military gift or throw pillow for your home decor.
