This is a lovely old Swat marriage pillow. The embroidery is in very good condition with no patches of wear and it was well executed. There are varying shades of reds, madder and pinks with accents of yellow and green. The back of the cushion, shown as the thumbnail photograph, leaves some of the natural cotton ground textile unembroidered as part of the design. There's a small stain on the cotton ground (see photo) but its quite faded and should be seen as a characteristic of a textile that's around 60 or 70 years old. A pretty blue cotton crochet trim has been added and this looks amazing flopped onto the cushion as the blue against the red is beautiful.
The end is fastened with strong press studs and there is a bespoke feather pad.
