Fine Antique Italian Pillow

An early 18th Century Italian Embroidered Panel

Deep crimson silk decorated with the most exquisite metallic silk embroidery

Finished with fine 18th century hand made metallic lace trim

Backed with 18th century silk damask

Front embroidered panel Dating from circa 1720, trims and backing circa 1780

This pillow has for many years formed part of the decoration in an English Country House and is in an antique time worn condition with appropriate sings of wear commensurate with almost three hundred years of use

Embroidery is in good condition for age and type

In my opinion it is absolutely beautiful, if only it could tell us all the wonderful things it has seen and heard over the centuries

Becoming more and more difficult to find these historic ancient textiles as they nearly all go directly into private collections or museums and very rarely come back onto the open market

SIZE 20 inches long x 9.5 inches wide
