Italian 18th Century Silk Ducal Crown Crest Pillow
An 18th century Italian crest stitch entirely with silk threads of sky blue and beige. Featuring a Ducal crown with silk jewels in red and yellow above a sky blue shield with sexfoil flowers that represents hope and joy, a fess across the middle representing a military belt and a wheel representing fortune. Typically a crest represents some kind of achievement by the bearer rather then representing a single family. The crest has been hand stitched onto sky blue silk velvet and edged with a French 19th century gold metallic trim embossed with clusters of grapes and leaves. Finished with a French 19th century 3” gold metallic fringe, 100% down insert. Condition: minor wear to the silk shield ground that is typical of something over 200 years old.
