19 Century Antique French Textile Pillow
One of my Favorites! This pillow shows so much beautiful history!
*The Front: The top is a 19th century floral textile that was once quilted, evident by the pinhole motif. A deep red background is highlighted with varying shades of pinks and golds. Coordinated below with a soft pink home spun linen Kelsch, featuring a small section of original hand stitching.
*Accented with: A truly outstanding example of hand made silk passementerie trim. The detail on this trim is exquisite! Pastel shades of silk thread adorn turned wooden tassels! Superb!!!
*The Back: A very supple cream linen with 3 button closure.
All in very good antique condition dating from late c1800 to early 1900's
Some VERY light age spotting and consistent fading on the floral add to the over all character and charm of this piece!
Trim falls just short of full width of pillow.
Lined for extra durability.
