Rare Antique Victorian "Merry Widow" Pillow Top - Lovely Lady in Black
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: A pillow top of what appears to be cotton canvas (lightweight) featuring the most incredible chromolithograph of a young lady! She is dressed in black and looks very much like a Merry Widow (or maybe I should say Black Widow - look at the Spiders on her collar) or a lady of the Gay 90s. Perhaps even a Gibson Girl. She's beautiful!
CONDITION: Excellent! The piece has been folded at times, rolled at times, so any waviness you see is simple the remnants of a fold. What this piece needs is a good ironing! No stains, rips, tears, etc. Some stray threads here and there but that's it.
SIZE: 22-3/4" x 22-3/4"
FINAL COMMENTS: I have personally owned this piece the last 10 years - found in an estate here in the St. Louis area. FIRST TIME OFFERED!
