Rare early 17th Century English Needlework Cushion Panel / Pillow. Embroidered with Large Stylized stump work Roses and Leaves amongst further flowers scrolling tendrils and fauna. Five joined panels bordered with Gold metallic lace. Later incorporated into a long bolster pillow.

A very rare Late Elizabethan needlework. Rightly now belongs in a Museum. Expected signs of wear commensurate with over 300 years of use. The original pile on the velvet ground now completely worn away leaving a strong cotton base. Silk ground at both end panels and central panel is shattered with age.

I can see a further (interesting) silk lining beneath this that gives it strength. So is not too delicate to handle.

Wear to gold metallic lace which has now darkened to a bronze colour. If so I would remove antique pillow stuffing which has now become very flat with age and frame it behind protective UV cover for future preservation. SIZE:- 44 inches long x 13 inches wide. All non paying buyers are then permanently blocked from all our future auctions.
