French Rococo Double-Sided Pillow with Silk Brocade and Silk Damask
Rollover to see front and back fabrics, reversible pillow
             
  A double-sided continental pillow, the front is French, circa 1730’s, brocaded silk damask depicting sprays
of flower. The flowers employ six different colors of silk and gold metal thread that is now showing the
yellow silk thread it was wound around all on a deep coral ground. The back is Italian, circa 1650, green
silk damask depicting individual stylized flowers. Both sides are edged with a 19th century French gold
metallic trim depicting grape bunches, grape leaves, wheat sheaves and maple leaves. The insert is 100%
pure down for added softness. Perfect for a bed or sofa, you get two pillows in one since you can use either
side.

Condition: The front is pieced in two pieces, which is typical of something well over 250 years old since
the fabric more then likely came from a court gown.
