Scandinavian Carriage Cushion: C1930 Sweden
From Scandinavia, most probably Sweden, a decorative flat weave wool carriage pillow dated 1930 and 1783.
Hand woven in beautifully soft muted colours these carriage pillows or cushions are traditional Swedish folk art ‘Agedyna’.
This is a lovely example of a carriage cushion and is a perfect study piece or addition to a collection.
There are some signs of wear around the outer edges (which could be easily darned) and the reverse striped underside has some lighter marks which a specialist cleaner may be able to improve upon or remove.
