Antique European Shams
Hello, Fellow Antique-ers and others who might be following along!
I just received a package in the mail I had been waiting for! It was three antique European shams I ordered for our upcoming Hob Nobbers sale. I found a contact person to order these beautiful linens from Europe and wanted to see if there was interest here but I only ordered three. They are all from estate sales, or people's homes directly and all are antiques. They are beautifully detailed with buttons on the back to hold in the pillows. They are much bigger than our U.S. shams so people may have to use more than one pillow per case. Europeans use them for sofas as well as bedding and even table coverings for small tables, maybe for a romantic bedroom look. They are gorgeously detailed. The three are pictured here. Sorry about the quality of the photo but you get a bit of an idea. Guess you'll just have to show up at our shopping event! If you love antique and vintage linens and textiles be sure and check out our Hob Nobbers sale or if you know others who might be interested, pass along this blog. If there seems to be an interest, I'll order more. Thanks for tuning in!
