Royale Deluxe – British Royalty 1953 Coronation Souvenir themed vintage cushions by Hunted and Stuffed

Posted on May 17, 2011 in Textiles

Inspired by the royal wedding, I’ve been making some unique vintage cushions using souvenir handkerchiefs from the coronation in 1953.

For these round cushions I managed to source two matching hankies in cotton featuring flags from all the countries of the commonwealth.  I have used a vintage ensign to make the reverse and have trimmed with a red pom pom fringe. (Sold out)

This is a one-off unique vintage cushion featuring a silk crepe hanky with a Coldstream Guard, Beefeater and lovely illustrations of important London landmarks such as the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey with flag standards in each corner.
Trimmed in a lemon yellow pom pom fringe and backed in royal purple velvet,  hand stitch finish. (Sold out)
