It is unusual to find an older hemp pillowcase that is in such fabulous condition - and in fact this one has not been used. As far as I can see the entire piece has been completely stitched by hand, not just the decorative work. It's a beauty and a nice piece of French textile history.

Charming monogram of the letters MB with a spray of lilac blooms. Four little mother of pearl buttons close the envelope at the back. UK postage £3.

This pillowcase is made from hemp which is a sturdy, strong fabric but this is also soft to the touch. A great decorative pillow, of course, but comfortable to sleep on too.

In excellent condition with no signs of use. No marks.

Space for pillow pad approximately 20.5 inches (52 cm) square

Approx weight: 300 grams
