Antique Alsace Kelsch Pillow Cover
This antique red, blue and white check pillow cover was hand-woven on a narrow loom using a fine linen on the check side and a raw silk on the reverse side. This type of fabric comes from the Alsace region of France, and is now quite hard to find. The reverse side is plain and has been hand embroidered with the initials BR.
Originally the pillow cover would have been stuffed with straw or feathers to use in the home. This type of fabric is unique and beautifully woven, the pillow cover can be used just as it is, or use the fabric for upholstery or to make smaller pillows. The fabric is hard wearing and in good condition for its age as it dates from the 1850's, no wear but one mark on the check side and a lot of marks on the reverse side.
Pillow cover size : 73cm wide (29inches ) x 1.28m long( 50inches).
Care instructions: Machine wash - cold . Line dry.
