Tiny stitches, a steady hand, patience and years of practice is how these old antique cushion covers were created. It's hard to imagine, in today's fast world, that a woman would spends days, weeks, months on a single project. But they did.
This charming old textile is literally a work of art. We found this beauty at a country auction full of various textiles from the mid to late 1800s. Though we have no actual history, it does appear to be over 100 years old.
Because of the intricate stitching and estimated age of this piece, we strongly suggest it be displayed with minimal use to protect its’s integrity. (No pillow fights with this sweet heart!)

- ONE oblong antique embroidered handmade cushion cover (as shown)
Good condition with wear consistent with age and use. The base cotton fabric is tightly woven, somewhat discolored and shows scattered mild staining, possibly due to moisture. Each end is whipstitched and the back opening only partially closed, assuming it will be finished once the cushion is in place. Loose threads throughout, though intricate design is intact.
Recommend not cleaning at all to protect integrity; or talk to your dry cleaner as the thread may not be colorfast and the fabric too fragile.
