I have a pillow...

I have a pillow that measures 8" x 10". The front is a rose and ecru checked print with a 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" smaller rose and ecru check print and a 4 1/2" x 5" ecru hand stitched inlay with a hand stitched angel wearing a blue checked dress. She has knotted yarn hair and bow with a pink button. The back is solid ecru with hand written #143, OTC, 1995 copywrite and is signed by Teresa Sheahan. I would love to find the worth of the pillow,. Where I refer to ecru color, I don't know if it was originally white and yellowed to ecru or not. It is still in the original clear cellophane bag.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Not that I know.

Just give me a good ballpark figure

Hello,

Not seeing this poses a disadvantage.

This was likely either produced by machine technique or as a needlepoint by a country crafter.

There is not a listed textile or embroidery artist by the name Teresa Sheahan.

At 8" x 10" and fairly new, being from 1995, this could possibly sell for up to $40.
