Embroidered 1901 Pan American Expo souvenir pillow?

jlc102482July 16, 2012

Over the weekend I purchased a souvenir embroidered 1901 Pan American Expo pillow. It's full size (for 1901) and is in great shape. It has large, beautiful Art Nouveau design embroidered on it of two women, North and South America, and "Pan American Exposition, Buffalo 1901". (I am having trouble uploading a photo of it, sorry.) It is not redwork - it was done in 6 or 7 different colors.

I suspect I got a good deal on it, but I can't find anything similar on the internet to compare it to. Does anyone have any idea what a value for such an item would be?

Pictures please.

It depends on the skill of the embroiderer and the complexity of the design.
