Antique Cross Stitch Embroidered Cushion Covers from Transylvania

We have just had delivery of a number of these exquisitely embroidered pillow cases. These  are around 80-120 years old, They would have been dowry pieces used to decorate the  bed in the "Best Room" for special occasions. The embroidered part is at the base of the sack shaped cover on both sides. When fillled the pillows would have been piled up on the bed with the embroidered part facing into the room
