Title: Vintage Cartier Silk Scarf backed in Irish Linen Pillow Cushion Sapphire Blue Antique Gold Description: Large custom made one-of-a-kind luxury cushion (pillow) created from an exquisite vintage pure silk Cartier fashion scarf in a striking bold design. It features their signature iconic Panther perched on top of a precious spherical sapphire stone in a very regal pose. The exotic gold animal is bejewelled with what appears to be pave-set sapphires and diamonds, like an item of jewelry, most likely a brooch. It’s a variation of the famous ‘haute joaillerie’ piece originally created for Duchess of Windsor Wallace Simpson. Considered one of jeweler Jean Toussaint's greatest triumphs for the Parisian brand, an empire which originated in 1847 with Louis-François Cartier, and one of his most whimsical, timeless and symbolic creations recognised all around the world. ‘The panther is the proud leader of the pack of precious animals that make up the famous Cartier menagerie.’ Assouline Publication Note the subtle foulard style patterns featuring elaborate bows, ornate chandelier motifs and the brand’s double ‘C’ logo woven repeatedly within the fabric, especially visible when caught by the light. With a beautiful soft feel to touch, this sumptuous silk is backed in new 100% pure Irish linen, the aristocrat of textiles and certified by the Irish Linen Guild, lined in a layer of natural bamboo wadding, filled with new plush duck feather insert and a concealed zip. The traditional oatmeal color linen is a combination of the unbleached raw colour of the natural flax plant on the weft intertwined with pristine white on the warp, resulting in a beautiful mottled melange effect. Katie is an ambassador The European Confederation of Flax and Hemp (CELC). This bold pillow is without a doubt the ultimate statement piece for an interior. Elegant and glam it conjures sophistication and seductive luxury with an essence of feline style. This design is very rare in the blue colour-way, and found in this exceptional condition.
