Century polychrome silk and wool Brussels tapestry pillow. This tapestry pillow has a square shape of 17 with 6-7 chain lines per centimeter. In our opinion, this pillow was made from a fragment of a larger tapestry featuring grotesque scenes symbolizing a particular season or a month.
Consistent with mythology, religion and cultures, the depiction of a serpent among leaves and flowers in this particular tapestry pillow typically symbolizes fertility and rebirth. This pillow cover is backed by a19th century teal blue silk velvet with a zipper.
Inside the cover is a down pillow. Except for some minor thinning or loss of silk in a few areas, this tapestry pillow is in very good condition. We describe our items to the best of our abilities.
