A pair of cushion coves from antique Transylvanian cross stitch embroidery originating from a small village in the Kalotaszeg region of Transylvania.

The embroidery is on a heavy cotton, attached to a finer cotton that has been pleated , these were probably originally large decorative pillow cases of the type used to decorate the traditional best room and part of the traditional dowry. The decorative, embroidered  part would have been at the base of the pillow case, the finer cotton for the body

Back fastened with wooden buttons
