Here is a nice antique layover sham of a little girl getting out of bed in the morning...holding gingerly onto her hightop shoes! Probably first one out of bed at her house and trying not to wake anyone else...this antique sham was meant to lay across one's pillow during the day and be removed before going to sleep. It will look wonderful in a little girl's room just like it did 100 years ago. It is hand embroidered in turkey red stitching and has been lovingly keep in a safe place for generations. Measuring about 30" x 28", it can be used as is or the buyer may wish to gently wash it to remove a few age marks. One tiny hole is easily forgiven or could be mended with a stitch or 2. I love these old textiles, don't you?
