Here is a wonderful old crib mattress cover or large pillow cover from the 1800s. Many years ago I was helping to downsize at an elderly friend's house and this was in an attic trunk. Unfortunately, others who were helping had already disposed of bags full of this type old textiles...how sad!! I bought this one and now it is my turn to downsize and a chance for you to purchase a wonderful old textile! It is about 35" x 25" (folded for pillow cover) and has hand stitched button holes at one end and 1 remaining button. One side has a nicely done 2" blue checked repair. There are some little holes here and there but overall the fabric is sturdy. Due to the large size, this was possibly used in a crib or carriage as a cover for a mattress or used as a large pillow cover on a bed. Nice textile from years past!!
May my treasures bring you JOY!
