Ochre Italy shows delightful pictorial descriptions of all the major towns in Italy including Sicily and Sardinia. It is 22″ with a yellow reverse and brown leather buttons and dates to the 1990s.
Another linen cushion – this time an atmospheric one of London Fog in times gone by with Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament in the background and a London Bobby in the foreground.
A striking linen cushion of the Britannia Royal Naval College at Dartmouth designed and signed by Jane Blair. It has a white linen reverse and fits a pillow pad.
An unusual one – an Aboriginal Art handkerchief from Ayers Rock hand sewn onto a cream calico cushion. It is 18″ with a cream reverse and brown buttons and dates to the 2000s.
This is a small silk 1950s Jacqmar scarf with blue and yellow flowers and a red border designed to look like a picture in a frame. It is 21″ with a cream reverse and blue buttons.
A striking geometric patterned scarf by Jacqmar with diamonds and squares in red and black against a white background with a black and red border. It is 22″ with a black reverse and red buttons and is from the 1960s.
I know I’ve posted this cushion before but today it’s up in honour of London Irish Wild Geese who yesterday won promotion to National League 2. A great day – and night – resulting in a total loss of voice! “Irish International Airlines” shows an aeroplane in the centre with O’Connell Bridge over the River Liffey, Ross Castle Killarney, St Patrick’s Bridge Cork and O’Connell Street Limerick in the four corners. It has a border of planes and shamrocks, a white Irish linen reverse and green buttons and dates to the 1960s after which the airline no longer existed.
I think my favourite scarves are those from the 1950s and here is a typical one. It is silk, 25″ with a pink reverse and blue buttons.
