Antique Embroidered Turkey Red Layover Sham ľA Glorious Morning!


A beautifully linen embroidered Turkey Red layover sham with all the work done in turkey red.  The feather stitch she used around the hem makes me green with envy.  The Eastern Europeans loved these but we know it’s American because the text is in English.  I’d like to think it was made by an immigrant proudly displaying the language of her new home.  It measures 31” x 30”.  The linen as aged to a soft white … just enough to delight the eyes but the embroidery is still brilliant.  The piece as a whole is strong and flawless. 

Hand washed, air dried and pressed.  Excellent condition   c. 1890’s
