GORGEOUS VINTAGE HEIRLOOM CROCHETED BY HAND FROM 1949 PATTERN CRINOLINE LADY CAMEO PILLOW CASES - 1 PAIR
These pillow cases are one of my very favorites! Recently I was fortunate enough to come across a number of beautiful pillow cases and will be putting them on Midnight Glamour in the near future.
My mother and grandmother crocheted decades ago and I know that this handwork of crocheted lace on this pillow case takes quite a bit of time to do. These pillow cases were hand crocheted from the 1949 copyright pattern book 262 Clark's J.P. & Coats Crinoline Lady in Crochet. People just do not do this hand work any more and it is difficult to find pillow cases in this wonderful condition. Just beautiful!
These vintage pillow cases are from the late '40s or '50s when people did this detailed type of work. The pillow cases have been made from pillow case tubing (no side seams but with a sharp crease on the sides) measure approximately 21" x 30-5/8" not including the pink crocheted lace hem.
The Crinoline Lady has a blue bow in her hair out that is crocheted as well as her parasol to protect her fair complexion. There are 5 frilly ruffles on her skirt along with the crocheted ruffle on the bottom of the pillow case.
The pillow cases will come to you freshly laundered, lightly starched and ironed and they are ready for you to put on your bed. They are in excellent condition and just pristine. One pillow case has a tiny light brown dot on the underside which no one will see.
These vintage heirloom hand crocheted pillow cases would make a guest room look beautiful, a wedding present for a bride who loves vintage linens, a housewarming gift or create a shabby chic look to a bedroom.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
