Please note: this listing is for one single pillowcase.
This is a standard size pillowcase, 21" x 30". In the first photograph, it is shown over a brand new (STILL IN THE PLASTIC) standard size pillow. Embroidered in a very detailed fashion, this pillowcase has flowers, vines and a butterfly in beautiful colors - blue, golden yellows, peridot green, peach, brown. The embroidery is expertly done. The stitches used are lazy daisy, edge stitch, satin stitch and french knots. There is spectacular white crochet trim all the way around the open end, about an inch wide. Again, expertly done. This was made from tubing, so there is a seam only at the top. Nice heavyweight cotton
This item is vintage, previously owned. There are two small holes in the center back, shown next to a ruler so you can get an idea of the size. If I were going to keep this for myself, I would mend it using Bondex iron on fabric mending tape. Having something iron on stops the hole from enlarging. Once an iron on cover is in place, I machine wash and machine dry, though I do use the gentle cycles. I have several "mended" pillowcases that I have used for years. I have also used iron on interfacing with good results. Normally, because of the small holes, I would keep this and use it.... but really, it is just a spectacular design, so I decided to offer it. I believe in full disclosure, so if there is a problem, I will tell you. Until this week all the vintage linens in my shop get the same treatment: 48 hour soak in a very gentle detergent made specifically for vintage linens. Washed in cold water, gentle detergent, no fragrance This week, however, I had the pleasure of working with four sets and nine singles in extraordinary condition!! NO 48 hour soak!! However, it was machine washed in cold water, gentle detergent, no fragrance, and it has been ironed. Inspected with a critical eye. After photographs, it was placed in a plastic zipper bag. Go ahead, call me Mrs. H. Mandel if you want to. The point is, when it comes from me, it is as clean as possible! A very beautiful, White and Fresh pillowcase!
Please note: The cost to Australia is for a small box. I will add additional purchases from NedaOriginals for no additional shipping cost until the box is full.
