Marriage Pillowe Kit
This Marriage Pillowe, a replica from an antique needlework in Phillipa’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.
The very first Marriage Pillowe we stitched here at The Crewel Work Company was given to Rufus (son and brother of Phillipa and Laura) for his wedding to Davina in 2010 (a groomsman is pictured holding it right). They used it to kneel on while the vicar performed the blessing, which was a wonderful touch to an already perfect day.
