Antique Beaded Whimsy Pillow with Duck Design

This Whimsy Pillow Beaded Duck features designs in transparent Pony Beads.  The crafter made this beaded pillow in an inverted spade shape.  He or she used bright pink fabric and a dark red polished cotton material.  Then he or she created the beaded botanical designs with a duck in the center.  Clear, Transparent  Green, Transparent Yellow,  and Transparent Blue Pony Beads make up the main design.  Gray Basket Beads accent the designs. The word ‘DUCK’ appears on the front in Transparent Blue Seed Beads.  The scalloped edges feature edge beading and beaded loops of Clear Pony Beads accented with Pink lined Clear, Green lined Clear, Turquoise, Black and Red Basket Beads.  The crafter backed the pillow with dark red colored polished cotton.  The pillow measures approximately 7 inches x 7.5 inches.  It is about 2 inches thick.  You will see very little bead loss.  The pink fabric on the front shows several holes.  You will see discoloration and stains on the natural colored fabric.    One of a Kind!

This Whimsy Pillow Beaded Duck 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!
