Please look at the photos carefully to be satisfied, the laces look very good but they are old though sturdy, but not brand new like the fabrics under them and the stuffing which is new too, I noticed a couple of pin drop rusted spots, very small and normal for something this old, they can be removed with a dab of bleach or hydrogen peroxide.
These pillows are entirely handmade, the base is either cotton or silk, white or slightly cream or slightly yellow colored, and all that material is new. The pillow fronts however are a pot pourri of antique laces or embroideries, quilted together on top, and these needle works are from 60 years to 90 years old: they were completely handcrafted originally, for the most part except for the ones from the 1960's.
These delicate handmade unique lace or embroideries came from France, are often mixed together in one pillow and most of them date from the 1920's to 1960's. They were created out of doilies and other lace handywork. 2 of them here have a hand embroidered butterfly on the front.
