These pillow cases were component of my haul of vintage linen goodies I gained from our guild’s rummage sale. When I opened up the baggie these were in I simply gasped. As a pair, they room so fabulous.

I found that these were stamped pillow shams available in the Sears Roebuck directory in 1897. Lock were initially $.23, if friend can think that! I believed that the embroidery on this were done exceptionally well, as I have seen some versions online in a less refined manner. 
I think this are an extremely telling about the median woman’s life in so late Victorian/early Edwardian days. Most women functioned either in the house or in a profession of part sort, and while dreaming is indeed beautiful, one should wake and also return to your duties. This is indigenous a poem by Ellen Sturgis Hooper, A Transcendental poet, who published it in The Dial in 1840.

I Slept, and Dreamed that Life to be BeautyBy Ellen Sturgis Hooper

I slept, and dreamed that life to be Beauty;I woke, and found the life to be Duty.Was your dream climate a shadowy lie?Toil on, sad heart, courageously,And you shalt uncover thy dream come beA noonday light and truth come thee.

The Dial (July 1840) p. 123
