A beautiful, single antique linen pillowcase, or sham, made in Italy in the early part of the twentieth century, probably around 1920. In terms of size, and style, it is a match to the pair listed on the site, but has not been embroidered, and the . It includes the pocket for the pillow, seven perfect mother of pearl buttons, deep draping drawnwork edges, further decorated with a border of bobbin lace. Exquisitely handmade.

Pillowcase is in excellent condition and shows no signs of wear. It was obviously put away and treasured. It fits a standard pillow beautifully and would look stunning on a modern bed.

Size: Including all lace, approximately 33" by 42",
Pillow pocket size: 28" by 20"

Condition: Excellent vintage

Found by The Wandering Poetess at an estate sale in Westport Connecticut.
