Gorgeous Bedspread & Pillow Decorations. A gorgeous vintage bedspread and two pillow decorations. The bedspread is quite beautiful. In some photographs it looks white and in others it looks cream.

In real life it is a very pale cream colour but it has not been laundered so when cleaned it could come up lighter. The bedspread measures about 100 inches by 104 inches or thereabouts.

In some photographs it has been displayed on my bed, but my bed has a deep top mattress as well as a topper so the bedspread does not drape down the sides of my bed as far as it might on just a mattress. To show this off to its best advantage it needs, in my opinion, white bedding underneath with a valance on the bed.

It would then come part way down the sides of a double bed. The pillow cases are not really pillow cases, hence my use of the term "decoration". They look like pillow cases but when turned to the reverse side you will find there is no gap for your pillow to slide into. So I think these are just for decoration on top of your pillows once they are inside a white pillow case. No doubt you could make these into "proper" pillow cases by adding a back.

There are some beautiful designs in the lace including lots of buttonhole stitched designs (see photographs) which occur mainly at the centre of flowers. Over the top of the cover the tape lace work is joined by bridges but on the sides the work is done on strong honeycomb design background. Looks like netting but is some other kind of open worked material I think. Some areas of the work have large leaf sprays with the leaves looking as though they have been applied to the honeycomb background.

Stems are made from lots of stitches worked together which form a narrow cord and I think this work is applied too. Some of the larger flower have petals filled in with lots of stitches which look like tiny flowers. All very elaborate and all very pretty. On the two pillow decorations there is a raw end to one of the leaf stems just mentioned with a short length of thread sticking out. Since these two faults are near a wide piece of tape work on a flower, I think these could be hidden underneath that. If you have sewing skills it should not be too difficult to do. If you look at other areas of the pillow decorations you will see that cords do disappear beneath the lace work.

Whilst folding up the bedspread, I noticed that one stem (cording) is similar to that mentioned on the pillow decorations. There is a lot of cording all over on these items so percentage wise the amount of cording that needs attention is very very small. Photograph 10 shows tiny marks on the bedspread. Photograph 11 shows a few darker marks.

I have not tried to remove either of these. There are no rips or tears or holes. The pillow decorations are, I would say, a darker cream colour than the bedspread, but this set has been stored away for some time.

The last photograph shows the decoration to the pillow pieces. I have more photographs if you want some more close ups of the lace work. When folded up the items make for a heavy package. Europe, USA/Canada, Japan, Korea and Scandinavia.
