Fabulous decorative Victorian handmade bead work pillow. Handwork like this was a favorite pastime of aristocratic ladies in the 19th century. This piece showcases that art beautifully. Delicious colorful beads were sewn on a brown velvet background in interesting floral designs. A wonderful heavy braid with copper metallic accents was applied to the border (see photo for detail). The pillow measures 8" square. It is in very good antique condition with the expected missing bead here and there. The brown velvet has aged wonderfully and shows signs of wear with fraying fabric in several spots giving it the look we so love! For its age and delicate nature, it is in good condition. It will look divine with your French or English antique accessories!
