Antique Style Victorian French Rococo Exquisite Romantic Marie Antoinette embroidered handmade pillow in a delicate soft shade of dusty mauve-rose.....I custom dyed the velvet base fabric and then overdyed it with soft mauve tones, giving it an exquisite, faintly marbled glow that changes from rose to mauve in different lights.....The theme of this pillow was inspired by the grand bedroom of Queen Marie Antoinette, at Versailles--she adored flowers and loved to surround herself with them in every aspect! This breathtaking creation is 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 antique lace and ribbonwork trim as well as gorgeous hand done ribbonwork embroidery and handmade flowers.... For many years I've looked at many of the "shabby chic" type pillows made from vintage materials, but never cared for the "shabby" part; am just not into the frayed and tattered look....! So 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 here, only the fabulous vintage elements and fine-couture quality finishing that is the standard for all my creations....This one has a truly exquisite, printed-on-fabric portrait of young Marie Antoinette as the centerpiece---surrounded by the most sumptuous hand done ribbonwork embroidery in soft pinks, rose, lavenders, and purple shades! A beautiful, big 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. This is ONE OF A KIND and is the LAST ONE that I will be doing in this particular elaborate embroidery pattern--I won't be duplicating this pillow either in embroidery style or colors in future--so grab it now!
This beauty is ready made and ready to ship---a perfect gift for a birthday, wedding, or just as a gorgeous piece of art for your bedroom or living room.......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.

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 Victorian, Edwardian and 1920's fashions and decor...This exquisite totally handmade pillow is a nice larger size to accommodate all the fantastic embroidery and detail...the entire front is exquisite soft-antique-look hand-dyed velveteen, in a dainty shade of softest dusty mauve rose, that is lavishly hand embroidered with tons of ribbonwork roses, leaves and flowers in garlands that circle the center portrait and also decorate each corner---various shades of purples, lavenders, pinks and ivory.....accented further with little hand sewn ribbon roses, ribbonwork flowers, two sparkling jeweled heart ornaments and ivory handmade beaded blossoms......all of the elements here are entirely hand sewn/handmade/hand embroidered! In the center is a gorgeous vintage-style print on fine cotton of Marie Antoinette as the young Dauphine of France in a purple gown....she is surrounded by carefully hand sewn ruffles of antique ivory and lilac handmade crochet lace, antique rose pink-embroidered trim and vintage soft purple and green ribbonwork garland trim....The backing of this pillow is exquisite, shimmering iridescent moire in a delicate shade of pink, and it is firmly filled with a high quality, separate pillow form. All elements of this pillow are very meticulously sewn; NO gluing whatsoever....all of the lace, embroidery and added elements are HAND SEWN on to the pillow front, not done by machine--strictly old-school craftsmanship.
This beauty measures 17 1/2" square....it's a large and wonderful centerpiece for a lavish bed, chair or sofa!
