French Velvet Pillow
Several weeks ago I purchased a French Velvet & Satin pillow.... circa 1910 -1920 from an online shop.
I've been patiently awaiting it's arrival....... all the way from France.
When the mail arrived today it was like Christmas! I could hardly wait to open the box.
I was delighted! It's gorgeous!........ and huge!!
I LOVE the ruching, the pleating and the contrast between the dark pink velvet and the light pink satin. I've never seen an antique pillow quite like this one.
It's in wonderful condition for it's age.
It reminds me of a pillow pictured on a pink settee in one of Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic books.
It's a wonderful addition to my collection. LOL! now I need a pink settee!
Happy Pink Saturday!
