A really interesting old textile that appears to be unused and dates to apx. the 1930's.  The colors, embroidery and motif would nicely compliment an Arts and Crafts, cabin or eclectic cottage decor.


The charmingly embroidered aesthetic design features a wetland marsh scene, with a large heron or crane and other birds that may be sea gulls, plus an array of water plants, including lily pads, water lilies, irises, lotus flower and grasses.


This is a large pillow cover, see measurements above, that could also be used for a bench, window seat, or settee, etc.


It is in very nice vintage estate condition.  Close scrutiny, in bright direct light revealed three very tiny and extremely minor storage related diffused specks to back, not previously noted without light aid.  Otherwise, we note no rips, tears, holes, snags, embroidery loss, stains, wear, fading, distress, odors or other problems.  The charming embroidery, executed in pleasing, complimentary colors, is very smooth, with nice even, tight stitches.  The fabric is also really nice.  Both the cotton and satin are more substantial, not thin and flimsy, yet both are very soft, with nice drape.  The red satin is a darker, rich red, not an orangey red. Except for a small 6 inch section left open for pillow insertion, the cover is completely finished and sewn closed, so once form or batting has been inserted, just a few whip stitches will quickly finish. (see last photo, near the bottom)  The pillow cover was photographed on a patterned damask red background, which probably wasn’t the best choice, but if you look closely at the last image you can hopefully see that the back of the textile, which is solid dark red satin, was folded over onto the black embroidered top, allowing a view of the back and front/top together.


Offered as found, a very nice vintage textile, featuring an interesting aesthetic, nature inspired embroidered motif.
