Whimsy Pillow Beaded Bird


Antique Beaded Whimsy Pillow with Bird Design

This Whimsy Pillow Beaded Bird features designs in transparent Pony Beads.  The crafter made this beaded pillow with purple velveteen and a natural colored cotton material.  Then he or she created the beaded botanical and bird designs with Clear, Transparent  Green, Transparent Yellow, Transparent Red, Transparent Pink and Transparent Blue Pony Beads.  Gray, Green and Red Basket Beads accent the designs.  The scalloped edges feature edge beading and beaded loops of Clear Pony Beads.  The crafter backed the pillow with natural colored polished cotton.  The pillow measures approximately 8.5 inches x 7 inches.  It is about 2 inches thick.  You will see very little bead loss along the top edge.  The velveteen is worn in places on the front.  You will see discoloration and stains on the natural colored fabric.    One of a Kind!

It is a classic example of the Beaded Whimsy tourist souvenirs that Native American crafters in the border regions between Canada and the United States made for the tourist trade.  Native American beaded whimsies refer to small decorative items or trinkets that  Native American artisans hand craft using intricate beadwork techniques. These ‘whimsical’ creations often come in practical shapes and styles like pincushions, match holders, picture frames, needle cases, bags and small decorative cushions.  One of a Kind!
