During the late 1800's, crafts using glass beads became very popular. Throughout the Victorian era, craft shops distributed materials and patterns for many hobbies such as this Pillow Whimsy. This beaded green pillow measures 5 1/2" tall x 5" wide. It is very nicely decorated with clear, green, amber, and red glass beads. The green velvet fabric on the front is in very good condition. The cotton fabric on the back is faded and stained, but no tears. I do not see any missing beads!
A lot of artistic handwork went into this charming Victorian beaded whimsy circa 1850's - 1900. These items are hard to find, especially in this good of condition. Don't miss out on this Victorian treasure!
