RARE Antique Set of 2 Pure Linen Monogrammed Pillow Savers
Absolutely gorgeous set of 2 pure linen antique Italian pillow savers, or 'copri-guanciali', extensively hand-embroidered and finished with the monogram 'LA'. Fantastic quality to the touch, these extra large pillow savers are over 120 years old but you wouldn't know it: they are in outstanding condition and ready to be enjoyed - a real testament to the quality of antique textiles!
Pillow savers are the precursors of the pillowcase: they would have been traditionally laid out across the pillows during the day and removed at night before bedtime, in order to protect the pillows from dust and dirt. Would make for a gorgeous wedding gift.
