This pair of pillowcases has survived so wonderfully well over the last century! There are little self ties inside the case to close it around the pillow. The floral design is charming, but it is really the scalloped edges with leaves that make this pair of pillow covers rare to find- they are completely hand embroidered. The cases have slightly rounded corners, there are some soft storage stains that may come out. Use these on your beds, or your sofa or porch swing for a gorgeous accent.
