Pair of Gold Vintage Cartier Panther Jewelry Silk Scarf Cushions Pillows
Pair of stunning large custom made one-of-a-kind luxury cushions (pillows) created from rare matching exquisite vintage pure silk Cartier fashion scarves in a striking bold design. It features their signature iconic Panther perched on top of a precious spherical stone in a very regal pose.
The exotic gold animal is bejewelled with what appears to be pave-set diamonds and onyx, 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. Note the subtle foulard style patterns featuring elaborate bows, ornate chandelier motifs and the brand’s signature double ‘C’ logo woven repeatedly within the fabric, especially visible when caught by the light.
With a beautiful sumptuous soft feel to touch, these luxury scarves are in perfect condition. One is an ever so slightly lighter shade of yellow than the other, but practically unnoticeable by the eye, they appear identical. 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 effect.
These bold and breathtaking pillows are without a doubt the ultimate statement pieces for an interior. Elegant and glam they conjure up sophistication and seductive luxury with an essence of feline style. They would be a splendid choice for a gift.
