Beautiful handmade 20" X 20" needlepoint pillow.  This design is licensed by the National Audubon Society. "Audubon saw several flocks of American flamingos in the Florida Keys in 1832, and he was exceedingly anxious to obtain a specimen from which he could make a painting. While in London, he wrote repeatedly to his friend Bachman in Charleston asking fro one. On August 14, 1837, he wrote: “P.S. Pray send us whatever Captain Coste may have collected for me round the Floridas; and I hope that you will also have some flamingos from Matenzas for me.” Then, on October 31, he wrote again: “As to flamingos their eggs etc I fear this is up for me; and this proves tome now that I was a great fool not to have gone to Cuba, or sent a person there expressly.” On December 28 of that year, he insisted once more, “When will the flamingoes come???” He finally obtained specimens from Cuba and made this drawing in London in 1838".

Made from 100% wool with a cotton velvet zippered back. Removable insert.   Dry clean only.

All pillows come with a poly insert. Down Stuffers are available as an luxurious alternative. Look for Part Number SD-2020 for a Down Stuffer suitable to give your 20" x 20" pillow a classic 'overstuffed' look.
