Patriotic items came in all forms. Women on the home front became very involved and would embroider, needlepoint or sew projects. This item could have been used as a wall covering or it might have been displayed on a sofa or chair pillow. The item measures 18″ x 15 3/4.” Lace edging trims the entire piece. Its basic color is white, with red and black worked into it (the three being Imperial Germany’s national colors). Each corner features an Iron Cross. At the top are the years “1914-1917.” In the center is a Hohenzollern Crown. The cover is in excellent condition. Framed, it would make an impressive presentation. One also could attach it to a pillow and have an equally amazing display.
