Price: $250.00
Art Nouveau Pillow Item# 8182 Circa 1900 17''W x 18''H This is a vintage pillow top with newer backing and fringe. It features a side profile of a beautiful young woman from the neck up. There is a large orange poppy over her ear and green foliage which seems to extend from her shoulder to her hair. The silk linen front is backed with tan velvet on the back. Cloth sheered fringe surrounds the pillow in black, beige and orange. The image is lithographed on the fabric in what was a new printing process in the very early 1900''s. The process was imported from Germany. This fabric is faded from it''s original brightness because of sun light, florescent lighting and time. There are several spots on the back velvet but it is in otherwise very good condition. The green foliage, orange poppy and her hair style are all appropriate for the period.This is a lovely reminder of a more gentle past. The image was called Sleep.
