Antique French pillow with wax flowers attached. This is a pillow as far as our dolls are concerned, but I believe it was originally part of a French wedding. The flowers may be orange blossom, which were part of French wedding crowns and later part of the wedding memoire, a glass dome or frame holding a variety of materials from the wedding. This may have held stockings, gloves or a prayer book.

All this means, for our purposes, that there's an inside pocket to put your doll's treasures or a sachet. It is made of silk twill, covered with 4 linen squares of cutwork embroidery, with crocheted trim around the outer edges. The diagonal ribbon is a wider version of rayon seam binding. The little group of flowers hooks around the ribbon, or you can easily detach and use separately. Directly from France, and it is oh so evocative! just a lovely item to display with your dolls. Measures 7.5 inches square, approx. 1 inch deep.
