B1801 - SOLD
Well, what can I say, except that this is one of the most gorgeous hand made antique French cushions I have ever seen! It dates from about 1920 and is large and sumptuous. It would look absolutely stunning on a daybed or chaise in a boudoir or salon.
The cushion is oval in shape. The top panel has been fabulously hand worked in fine needlepoint. The design is utterly charming. It has a turquoise background upon which is a basket tied with a ribbon. A tiny kitten sits in the centre of the basket surrounded by gorgeous pink roses and buds - just lovely.
The tapestry panel is set in silk in a fabulous shade of daffodil yellow. The silk is gently gathered around the edge of the cushion giving it a soft and sumptuous look.
The back of the cushion is made in a fine cotton.
The cushion is in good antique condition with just a little minor wear to the silk in places (please see photos) and a faint water mark to one end.
The cushion measures :- 68 cm (26.75 inches) wide x 46 cm (18.1 inches) high and is 15 cm (5.9 inches) thick.
This is a gorgeous cushion to add an authentic antique finishing touch and another divine antique French textile find from La Belle Étoffe.
