Swedish Cushion
Early 19th c

Excellent condition. The backing is later because it has been machine stitched.


Carriage Cushion, from Skane wool tapestry woven with a central circular wreath of stylised leaves and flowers containing a woman to the forefront in a red blouse and blue skirt with coloured lines, the man in blue hat and red frock coat with red shoes, his feet sticking out to the side, bearing a stick, with a curtain and flowers, the surround with a central angel face and wings flanked in the spandrels and sides with stylised tulips and flowers in a variety of sizes, all in shades of red through pink, blue green, ochre and pale blue on an dark brown ground, looped fringing, padded, the backing with buttoned loops, 19 in; 49 cm sq


I love the naive quality of these cushion covers.
