Cherry blossom embroidered silk x 1

This is a truly beautiful and one off piece. The softest cream vintage silk satin has been embroidered with birds and flowers that simply glow with subtle colour. The birds with their long tale feathers sit on a branch of flowering cherry under which roses bloom. All embroidered by hand. I have framed it with a pleated pale pink silk taffeta and put a row of perfectly matching ribbon with graduating colour from pale pink to green. The edges of the silk taffeta are torn so as to give an air of elegant decay. This would look so beautiful on a chaise longue waiting for you to stroke it while you read a book. Preferably one about Japan in the 1920s. This is a one off precious collectors piece. A zip on the bottom gives access to the soft enclosed made-to-measure100% feather insert which comes with the cushion. It should be dry cleaned with the greatest of care.
Size: 22 x 14 (56cm x 36cm)
