Went our to lunch with my brother and sis-in-law yesterday, and wandered a local antique/estate sale. We came home with these fabulous and well-made decorator pillows, (selling each one separately) each incorporating charming Victorian era needlepoint, needlework, embroidery panels. The one being sold here is one of our finds, a full 19" long, 15" tall, plus 1" wide lush fringe, so very nice sized. The fun part of this one is that the designer has incorporated a fully worked needlepoint of a spaniel on its Victorian pillow - is it Queen Victoria's "Bash"? A bit of license with his colors, if so. Fabulous palette and such a charming pillow! A very nice choice of looped and undulating lush fringed wool trim expands it's already large form. The grouped photos show how it works with a variety of others, including the other 2 I'll be listing today. All pillows are sold separately.
Very good to excellent condition both for the age of the old needlepoint used, and for the newer plush fabric and trims. The pillow is clean, no odors, no stains, just lovely. It has a thick fill, but it is not down-filled. The pillow is made without zipper, but one could unpick a section and trade out it's fill-pillow with a down pillow quite easily. Shown from all angles. Measurements in full noted on the photos. It has the feel of a Victorian pillow, but my guess would be this was made into a pillow 30-50 years ago, possibly vintage. Again, no odors or stains.
