This Gourague headrest consists of a double-tiered cone-shaped base adorned with fine criss-cross and triangular markings. Decorating the curved neck rest are a series of striations. Two downward-facing lugs, located at each end of the upper support, are embellished with linear designs.
The headrest bears traces of fat (white in colour) on its underside and support.
Estimated Period: Late 19th Century
