Antique Style Victorian Edwardian Shabby/Cottage Chic Romantic exquisite heart shaped soft robin's egg blue hand crocheted, handmade pillow with a silk foundation.....part of my very popular line of fabulous antique-inspired, totally romantic shabby chic/cottage chic and Victorian style pillows....This one is lavished with handsewn antique and vintage laces and tons of gorgeous ribbonwork and embroidered felt flowers....so perfect in a Victorian or Edwardian room! I decided to design my own very antique-inspired pieces that incorporate some of the exquisite laces, trims & materials in my never ending stash, with more elegant & clean details....you won't find any raw edges or haphazardly tacked-on doilies/bits of random trim here, only the fabulous vintage elements and fine-couture quality finishing that is the standard for all my creations....This one has the loveliest shade of delicate robin's egg blue hand crochet over ivory silk. A beautiful, plump pillow that will be the focal point of a wonderful antique style room/bedroom/boudoir...the perfect accent for a lavish bed or an elegant sofa/chair or chaise.
NOTE: This is a MADE TO ORDER piece, individually created by me, so there is a 6 week completion time before shipment---if that presents a problem for you, please do not purchase! PLEASE BE SURE to read ALL of the description especially the measurements, BEFORE asking any questions---and do be absolutely positive this piece will match your requirements, as there are no refunds or returns.
Important: Since the pattern of antique lace and trims varies and the supply is extremely limited, each pillow is individually handmade and may have slightly different configurations than as shown in the photos; however overall appearance will be the same.
I love antique and vintage clothing and have collected it for years, as well as having a longtime design career including doing costume & restoration work for major movie studios and museums....Am now translating that love to my own contemporary creations and using all the fine extraordinary antique and vintage materials, laces, trims, beads etc that I've collected for more than 30 years in these wonderful pieces....along with the finest of hand sewing and one of a kind details. Everything I create is individually hand made solely by me and has the very best of my carefully hoarded private stash of superb old accents (I use ONLY vintage materials that are in pristine, freshly-cleaned condition---no deteriorating, too-aged or rotting pieces EVER) plus the finest of modern silks, cottons and wools that I can find.....resulting in a fabulous truly authentic vintage look piece. Impeccable professional workmanship and design are the hallmarks here...
This incredible piece was inspired by my love of antique fashions and decor as well as the dainty pastel and cream color scheme of classic cottage/shabby chic...This exquisite totally handmade, sweetly heart shaped pillow is a nice dainty size and has several types of delicate detailed trims that I've handsewn on..the hand crocheted soft blue lacy front features handmade ribbonwork rosette flowers & leaves and antique handmade lace; in the center is a gorgeous vintage-style print on fine cotton of a beautiful Gainsborough-era lady in an elaborate hat....she is surrounded by exquisite pale golden yellow ribbonwork flowers and soft felted, hand embroidered and beaded pink ones; circling this centerpiece is some fab vintage ivory and blue braid trim with the most delicate, tiny metallic threads woven into the design that gives the most refined little hint and glint of gold....dotting the outer border of the pillow are more of the ribbonwork yellow flowers and pink beaded felt flowers, alternating around the pillow. The edge is finished with a wide, full ruffle of gorgeous two-tone antique lace in ivory and ecru, peeking out from under the attached blue crocheted scalloped border. (again: since the pattern of antique lace and trims varies and the supply is extremely limited, each pillow is individually handmade and may have slightly different configurations than as shown in the photos; however overall appearance will be the same. ) The base of the pillow is soft ivory silk and fine aqua silk bengaline, which I custom tailored and created in a matching heart shape to fit exactly--it is firmly filled with a nicely plump batting. All elements of this pillow are very meticulously sewn; NO gluing whatsoever....all of the laces and added elements are HAND SEWN on to the pillow front, not done by machine--strictly old-school craftsmanship. Measurements of this beauty: approx 15" by 15" in diameter total, which includes the 2" ruffle of antique lace all around.
