Description

The lush design embroidered on this pretty pillow comes from Ernestine Eberhardt Zaumseil's (American, 1828–1904) Branches and Vines Quilt (ca. 1875) in The Met collection. The so-called "Tree of Life" pattern had been popular on bedcovers since the 17th century; known as palapores, these bedcovers were of Indian origin and featured a stylized tree bearing multiple fruits and flowers. Zaumseil's more realistic interpretation may be owed to her having traced actual leaves collected from trees and vines.
