Italian 16th - 17th century fragment of silk and metal flowers that were once gold but have aged to a silver darkness surrounded by red/wine and brown silk velvet. Edged with a 19th French red/wine silk cut velvet tape, 18th century handmade silver metal torchon lace and 19th French silver metal eyelash trim. Backed with a red silk velvet, insert 100% European down. (2 available, price is for each, one pillow)
Condition: Mild rub/wear to the ground silver metal thread, metal flowers have patina on them due to age. Some of the original gold colored flowers show around the edges, they’re gold because they were covered and blocked from air, something that will tarnish the metal threads.
