This outstanding antique French appliqué was salvaged from a stunning antique French pillow, which had unfortunately seen better days.
This appliqué is hand stitched using chenille & gold metallic threads; the colors are very antique looking, done in various muted shades of lavender, rose, peach, green, French blue, gray & beige. The last three photos show the back, so you can see the hand stitching detail.
There are remnants of the old silk fabric & cream color linen the appliqué is attached to; you will need to “clean up/cut around” some of the edges. I started doing it and was surprised at how quickly it went. You may choose to cut off some of the smaller side pieces, to use separately, leaving the basket, bow & larger flowers as one appliqué.
The condition is superb, with no flaws to note. There are no odors.
The approximate dimensions are: 11 1/2" tall from the top of the bow to the bottom of the basket; the widest part in the center is 10 3/4".
This gorgeous French appliqué would certainly enhance a lamp shade, pillow or other items.
