Cushion of the Day – Tuesday 05.02.13

Here is “Agusta Helicopters” a 29″ silk cushion showing nine helicopters designed and built by the Italian helicopter company Agusta.  The company was founded at the beginning of the 1900s by Count Giovanni Agusta and is still going strong today.  Sadly the helicopter which crashed recently in London was also an Agusta.  With thanks to Duncan who supplied me with info on all the aircraft featured so that I can date the scarf to the early 1970s.
