Here we have a very unusual large oval cushion featuring a goat herder boy sitting on a tree with his goat, it is hand painted onto satin and parts of it are embroidered.
It has a deep piped border and the back is made from black velvet, and it is filled with a heavy and plump feather inner.
It is a stunning piece of textile art. It reminds me of the Sound of Music song 'High on a hill was a lonely goatherd, yodelayee, yodalayee, modally-hee-hee'
It measures approximately 22" wide and 16" deep
