This Marriage Pillowe, a replica from antique needlework in embroidery specialist Phillipa Turnbull’s private collection, would originally have been created to commemorate a wedding in England during the early 18th Century. This Georgian design of a happy couple are placed within an idyllic landscape. The Marriage Pillowe is in a romantic style typical of the period.
This would make a very special wedding present.
