Chinese antique butterfly with velvet dots

A complete 1 off cushion. An antique Chinese embroidered butterfly sits on its original purplish grey background which I’ve then appliqed onto a pale blue and white cotton damask fabric, there is a tiny mauve satin ribbon around the butterfly section. The ends have a wonderfully tactile cut pile velvet with green, pale blue & pale grey dots and a vintage pale blue “gimp” braid delineates the cut velvet from the damask. The outer edge has a brush fringe around it in a pale olivey green. The central piece with the butterfly is an incredibly old (around 100 years) piece of antique fabric and has some wear in the butterflies body. I think it’s best Not to sit on this cushion either and have it purely for display. It comes with a specially made 100% feather insert and should be dry cleaned VERY carefully.
Size: 18” x 15” (46cm x 38cm)
