1930's Art Deco Voided Velvet Pillow
This unusual 20 inch round, likely one-of-a-kind Art Deco pillow came out of the same estate as the Arts and Crafts pillow. Made from a very interesting voided velvet fabric of a richly varied yet harmonious color palette, which has mellowed with time. You can see in the last picture how the colors have mellowed by pulling open the folds of the fabric to where the UV rays have not reached. In it's original condition, the pillow must have been quite brassy and garrish. In my opinion, time has improved it considerably, like a good bottle of wine! Piping around edge of pillow is made from the muted pink bristley velvet one often sees on upholstered sofas and chairs of the period. Fabric is gathered and fastened in the center with a 1 1/2 inch double-sided botton covered in the same fabric as the pillow. Seems to be stuffed with kapok or some such material, giving the pillow a weighty and substantial feel. Both sides have a slightly different range of colors, adding versatility in matching a color scheme. Colors are a lovely range of ochre, terra cotta pinks, sage, turquoise against black.
