Antique Machine Lace Embroidery Pillow Cover Bolster Sham Early 1900s

posted in: Antiques News | 0

Pillow shams and bolster covers were popular through the decades of the Victorian and very early 1900’s.  They served as a decorative cover for the pillow, removing, before retiring for the night. During the day, the bed would always look tidy, as well as pretty. when the shams and bolster were laid back over the pillows.  You will find these covers made of fabric, embroidery and lace, some more fancy than others.   Sometimes the bolster covers could also be used for sheet returns.  Again, this was a embellished cover laid over the top of the plain sheet for a decorative look.

The Gatherings is offering a bolster or sheet return made of white cotton, machine wide lace and embroidery panels.  A lovely addition to dress up plain bedding, the bolster or sheet return is 61″ long x 22″ wide.  It would fit a double size or standard bed.
