Dusky Fusion Pillow, Cushion, Antique Velvet, Intricate Bead Work, Bohemian, Gypsy, Home Decor

This little pillow is made from a fusion of global textiles and beads including the antique velvet in a dusky pink red tone, antique French wide woven embroidered edge, vintage pink taffeta frill and chenille cotton fringe to one side. The other side features antique fine Asian embroidery in old faded colours. There is a long strip of antique French millinery metal trim with a woven silk thread detail.

This interesting pillow has intricate appliques of antique metallic embroidered silks, some original beading. I further beaded around the edges of it with old glass tarnished silvered beads, that I took from an old broken beaded tassel. This shimmers beautifully in a subtle way. Filigree metal, crystal, wired beads and a pale green Freshwater pearl atop a textured silver tone disc bead finish it off.
This will look great on it's own little chair, the bed or used as a brooch cushion. For decorative use and display.

Please note that this pillow is made of many a fine antique textile so there are some missing metallic bullion worked places, tarnishing and small, hardly noticeable age marks here and there - not to be seen as flaws but as typically characteristics of the genuine old and beautiful pieces that are given a new chance to bring old glamour back into being :-)

The backing fabric is a pink paisley cotton. It is stuffed plump and full with the white fluffy stuff! Sewn all around, no zip or opening. Dry clean only.
It measures 15" L x 12" H plus 4" Frill and fringing at the side

Overpaid shipping is refunded
Thank you :-)
