Pair of antique, 18th century, pillows with Italian silk cut velvet panels with scrolling branches and leaves and applied to crimson silk velvet trimmed with a geometric gold metallic and silk base trim and finished with metallic cording. The backs of these pillows each have a seam, probably due to the fact silk velvet of this age wasn't made wider than 18" due to the expense of the looms. The Fronts probably have a seam as well but hidden under the cut velvet panels.
Condition: Minor wear/rub to the silk velvet consistent of age. Please view all pictures as they relate to the condition.
