Vintage Vogue Vogart Tinted Embroidered Pillow Cover
A pretty lady, a basket of flowers and a butterfly! A pretty pillow for you cottage or sunroom.
Tinted and embroidered on cotton muslin. The tinting is bright with only light fading; no bleeding of colors. No spots/stains/holes. The majority of the needlework is in very good condition. T are a couple areas of weakened embroidery floss--on the centers of the right pink and middle blue flowers and on the basket. Displays well. I did not make any repairs but these areas could be gone over with black floss.
The pillow cover was finished with a golden color lip cord. Open at the bottom for pillow insert.
Vogue markings. Instructions on the inside of the cover read --"outline with black-self color in flowers and leaves". Approx. 15 x 15. The auction is for the cover only; use a standard 16 x 16 pillow form for the insert. Washed and ready to use.
Check out The Thread and Needle Fairy store for books of reproduced tinted linen patterns.
