A beautiful fine vintage or antique pair of French linen pillow shams or cushion covers, with hand embroidered monograms, and neat ladderwork edging all around. The pillowcases have initials in an oval shaped monogram H P.
The pillowcases probably date from the early twentieth century going by the style of the monogram, the sewing in the construction and embroidery is all hand worked. The linen is fine and has a high thread count, very good quality. Each case is almost square, and there is a border of textile around the edge in the style known as an Oxford pillowcase. The back of the pillows each has a simple inner overlapping envelope closure.
Size approx length 73cm at outer edge, 63cm inside, and width 71cm outside edge, 61 inside. I have used a standard European square pillow which is 65x65cm to give a plump cushion, you could use a slightly smaller filler to give a less full appearance. There are some slight dust storage and age marks on one of the pair, they are faint and I have tried to record them in the photos. I have not attempted removal of these, it is possible that some spot cleaning, or laundry with appropriate chemicals would remove these.
Price is for two pillowcases, a pair. The inner cushion is NOT included.
We are able to post out parcels from Metropolitan France and shipping fees are shown. Please allow plenty of transit time, as European post is notoriously slow!
*The customer is responsible for any import duties incurred for an item. We will require a telephone number to add to the customs forms, to help prevent any delays or transit problems. If you refuse delivery of an item due to customs costs, please be aware that your parcel's postage costs will be forfeit, although we are happy to refund the item purchase price upon return.
**Please also note that most deliveries within France and some other European Union countries are usually made to a Pont Relais collection point, there are usually a number of these located in shops and supermarkets in each town, and you will be given the opportunity to specify which one you prefer if this service is available for your location. Otherwise I will select the shop with the longest opening hours within your area. Deliveries to most other European destinations are generally to your doorstep unless it is much cheaper to use Pont Relais.
***Currently deliveries to the UK may be impacted by Brexit paperwork and procedural delays. This situation is becoming easier as time goes by. The sales tax is being included in any sales so there should be nothing extra due to pay when your parcel arrives, subject to customs clearance.
Our items are carefully selected antique and vintage pieces from France and they show the character and charm of years of use. We do not sell new or reproduction items so you can expect to find signs of the age and life that the piece has led. We believe this history adds to the story of an item. Obvious damage and faults will always be mentioned in our descriptions but minor age-related condition issues are not considered a detriment.
