Beautiful hand needlepointed wool pillow with zipper. Fluffy down pillow inside. 18 x 18
The timeless design that graces this pillow is adapted from exquisite antique botanical illustrations by naturalist Mark Catesby. In 1767, Catesby printed a book of illustrated collections of “curious trees and shrubs”, the produce of North America. Naturalists of the time created artwork to capture the new flora and fauna. This rare and exquisite book resides in the collections of The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. Floral Study #1 is lovely shades of greens. Long leaves surrounded by berries.
