Italian Bolster or Pillow Case,Linen, Lace, Embroidery
SOLD, Thank you! Watch for more of these wonderful cases as I prepare them for the catalogue

Measuring 58" x 16" plus 4 1/2" lace at each end, as well as a 1" border of Italian"punto tagliato" or openwork with drawn threads .There is also an area of drawnwork across the end without "Aurea". I hope the photos show the beauty of this "Aurea"(meaning "golden") design! The letters,flowers, and leaves have different combinations of embroidery stitches and cutwork filled with different Italian needlework. There is obvious handwork,but most of the embroidery is older hand guided machine. The lace is in good condition,but for a few small hand repairs (most likely preventative) and a few broken brides ? a missing wheat ear ,nothing to take away from the integrity of this heirloom! Luxurious linen! Joined with small French seams. Freshly laundered and ironed. Watch for more from this trousseau as I launder them !
