Great big beautiful shams! This is the first time I had ever seen European shams in person but I decided my king-sized bed needed more than just the 2 standard shams the quilt I bought came with. What a difference they made. They are larger than life (26" square) and full with soft, nicely made covers and of course, fit perfectly in the shams I bought. Look fantastic on my bed. You won't be sorry you bought them.
