Vintage Oriental Pillow, Japan Theme, Black Velvet, Japanese Shinto, Home Decor, Geisha Woman, Yellow Gold Fringes, Round Shape

$132.00 $165.00

The gorgeous black velvet oriental accent pillow is in very good condition. The yellowish-gold fringes on the outside of the cover help cast the attention to the beautiful Japanese Shinto pilgrimage theme on the front. Most of the bold colored lines on the cover are actually painted-on making them very noticeable when touching the surface. The outline of the robe on the geisha woman along with a couple of the wave-like lines in the dark water are actually formed and/or highlighted with glitter. There is a slight contrast moving inward from the black outer section near the yellowish-gold fringes to more of a dark-charcoal gray in the background. The fauna gets much of its incredible depth from the yellow highlights atop the rounded shrubbery. Since the architecture is more consistent with a Japanese Shinto house, the mountain depicted in the background is almost certainly Mt. Fuji. Another incredible feature that may be harder to truly appreciate from the photos has to do with the way the artist added distance through the brown vertical pathways leading toward the Shinto house. From the brown knoll under the feet of the geisha, the path is depicted as coming into a clearing two times before disappearing under the thick canopy. Hence, the scene depicted on this gorgeous black velvet accent pillow is not simply a stroll. The distance portrayed in this beautiful scene is more consistent with a pilgrimage to her house of worship. Furthermore, by taking into account the size of the two very small white sails depicted to the left of the geisha woman's head, her pilgrimage would at least cover a few miles.

While the back once had at least two small snap-buttons to hold it in place, the cover has since been sewn together. To remove the outer cover, the threads simply need to be cut. Also, the reason the thread line is not very straight on the back is due to the fact that the pillow cover did not have a lot of extra material to attach together. While there is a pillow on the inside of the cover that appears to be very well-made as can be seen by its plump overall appearance, the outer cover is still a little loose and could probably hold more filling. While it is hard to be certain, the filling inside the inner pillow appears to be more consistent with cotton than feathers.

Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual.

There are no rips, tears, bad odors, or repair places on this gorgeous black velvet oriental accent pillow. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub marks on this gorgeous oriental accent pillow - mainly in the form of slight distress on the material covering the back. While the photos show them laying both forward and backward, the fringes run around the entirety of the exterior edge of the cover. Even though they do show some signs of age, the fringes appear to be in very good condition. In addition, it is important to remember that lint can sometimes show more easily on black velvet. Hence, on occasion a lint roller could be used across the front of the pillow.

The decorative possibilities for this gorgeous oriental accent pillow are many. The living room or den would be enhanced by the addition of this beautiful oriental accent pillow. Also, the entryway or dining room would welcome this black velvet pillow for its stunning depiction of a very orderly and well-manicured Japanese landscape. In addition, this pillow would go great with virtually any decor theme. The oriental theme is so distinct and the artwork is so detailed that this beautiful accent pillow would be considered just as much a piece of art as a framed oil-on-canvas painting.

The collector will appreciate this beautiful black velvet oriental accent pillow for its very good condition, Japanese Shinto pilgrimage theme, incredible depth, stunning landscape features, and gorgeous overall appearance.

The gorgeous black velvet oriental accent pillow weighs 15.4 oz.

The round Japanese theme accent pillow measures approximately 16" wide across from outside to outside not including the fringes x approximately 4.75" thick.

Each fringe area measures approximately 7/8" in length.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.

***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.

***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.

***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
