Beautiful Antique French Tapestry Pillows

One of the best things about blogging has been connecting with so many great people around the world. I have also become friends with some wonderful bloggers and readers in my own back yard! One of my Atlanta readers, Gigi, shares my passion for real estate, and we are always emailing back and forth about what houses are new on the market (she has provided more than one lead for my blog posts), and what we think about the renovations and new construction projects that are going on around Buckhead.

I recently learned that not only is Gigi an avid real estate afficionado, but she is also an antique dealer who travels to Europe to find beautiful pieces to sell to customers far and wide. Here are two pieces that caught my eye when looking at her inventory. This pillow is made from a fragment of 18th century French tapestry that was hand woven in a color palette typical of early 18th century textile design. The tapestry is framed in a brown velvet ribbon from France, and finished off with high quality linen. It measures 10 inches by 20 inches, and is priced at $395.

There is another similar pillow, also made with a fragment of 18th century French tapestry. The tapestry on this pillow is framed in a neutral color gimp, as well as high quality linen. It measures 10 inches x 20 inches, and is priced at $395.

For more information or to purchase one of these beautiful and unique pillows, please email me at (preferably with antique tapestry pillow as the subject), and I will make sure to forward the email to Gigi. She ships all over the United States; international sales and shipping are possible, but must be discussed ahead of time.
