I will be posting another like it only brighter colors in January. Custom pillow inquiries are always welcome! For your review is a new custom designed pillow created from a near antique tapestry showing 5 children, girls, playing "blind man's bluff".The tapestry colors are gold, beige, and gray, with some areas of rose.. I was told it was made in the 1940's. There is uniform fading as would be expected, and it is in beautiful condition with no tears or fraying. The tapestry has been cleaned and smells fresh. I chose my favorite fringe tassel trim which is gold, gray and rose for the outside border of the pillow.
The colors in the trim match perfectly with the tapestry. The pillow is lined with a hidden zipper placed in the bottom seam. A medium brownish taupe was chosen for the back. This fabric is a very soft velvet and is very easy to smooth. The color is even, it is a new fabric without flaws.Any variance in color in the photo of the back is probably from lighting. The dimensions are 18" x 18" from seam to seam.
This pillow is one of two made from the same tapestry. The two look beautiful together, the other has a different design. The two pillows can be seen together in the last 2 photos and the other one is listed in my shop.He standards for nearly all of my pillows include. Tapestries and needleworks are gently laundered and blocked. The pillows are one of a kind designs. Most tapestries and needleworks are European vintage or antique. Modified french corners are done to prevent a wide and floppy "dog ear" look.
Pillows are lined with muslin for form and stability. All seams are joined or covered with cording, gimp, ribbon, or fringe tassel trim. Hidden zippers are inserted in the bottom seam.
A poly hypoallergenic pillow insert is standard If you prefer a down pillow please let me know and I will adjust the price. NOTE: THIS PILLOW COMES WITH A FEATHER DOWN INSERT. It may be possible to use gentle detergent to spot clean a needlepoint or tapestry if not too soiled. The risk would be in causing a water mark.
I highly recommend dry cleaning, especially with delicate fabrics. NOTE: This package weighs between 4-5 lbs with the down feather insert.I can switch the insert to a lighter polyfil type... If you contact me before purchasing, I can do a reserved listing for you with the exact price. Please contact me as soon as you know you want to return something.
Post mark must be within 30 days of receipt. Of course, if merchandise arrives damaged, contact me immediately upon receipt (within 24 hrs). Prices have been set according to a grid which includes age (antique, vintage, preowned, or new), rarity of tapestry or needlework, overall condition, place of origination if known, amount of detail and hand sewing required, and my cost of materials. I create each pillow as if it were my own, and each one takes as long as it takes to perfect. I love to take custom pillow requests.
