Ascension pillow

After attending an Ascension day service recently in our local 15th Century Church, I came home humming the anthem for “Ascendit Deus”…. It inspired me and turned up as this exotic treasure. I’ve had the tiny piece of embroidery for ages, it was given to me by a female Vicar that I made a chasuble for and had been removed from an alter cloth that had perished around it. The silver bullion work is ancient too although I don’t know its exact provenance. Indian/ Victorian I would say. The embroideries sit on a background of eau de nil satin with double rows of gros grain ribbon and satin ribbon. It is piped with a beautiful blue-grey crushed velvet and backed with a fine raw silk in a delicate plaid design. It comes with its own made to measure feather insert and will have to be very carefully dry cleaned as it it a true heirloom piece.
Size: 18” x 14” (45cm x 35cm)
