This precious antique boudoir pillow is in good condition. The body is made of soft pale pink silk satin, the top is covered with a delicate Appenzell embroidery on sheer ivory batiste.
The monogram in the center (R, B and L) is surrounded by posies of pansies and groups of tiny birds flying among them. The pink silk is in good condition with a few tiny dustmarks due to age. The embroidered ivory batiste that gives an impression of cream instead of pink to the top as the silk can hardly shine through, has a bit of overall dust and 2 tiny stains (quite discrete) one 1/16" brown and one 4/16" white. The cushion is trimmed with a handmade lace edging. The batiste could possibly be unstitched to be cleaned, but as it is, it gives an overall impression of slightly faded, precious thing (but not timeworn though).7" X 7" 1/2 + 1 bobbin lace all around. Unfortunately the small priority parcel does not exist any more since the 1.1.2015. Please be aware that whatever I'm listing, (mostly fabric, materials, costume pieces, lace and accessoires to repair) it can sometimes be in good condition but it is NEVER NEW from a shop shelf!!!! (so signs of a former life are often noticeable unless they are described clearly as VGC or AS NEW).
