Georgian Welcome Little Stranger Birth Pillow. Christening Pin Cushion 1820.

Stock Number: WPC2085

£425.00

This charming christening birth cushion which dates from the period of George IV is made of cream silk filled with straw and has been lovingly decorated with hand made metal pins.

This pretty pillow is beautifully decorated with Welcome Little Stranger 1820, crowns and flowers in a basket. The word stranger has been mis-spelt so may have been made by a child. The edges are finished with braiding and the four corners have tufting decoration.

This cushion would have been given as a gift to a new Mum in 1820 so is a wonderful piece of history that is over 200 years old and would make a great collector's piece.

Date: 1820.
