A William Shakespeare themed large bench cushion created from a vintage upcycled Tea Towel (in fantastic condition) featuring the Bard himself, Shakespeare. I believe this tea towel to date to the 1970's. It features a large portrait of Bill and across the centre an orange scroll bearing the words 'Stratford Upon Avon', Shakespeare's birthplace.

Below is a drawing of Anne Hathaway's Cottage, not that actress from 'The Devil Wears Prada' but the original Anne Hathaway who was Shakespeare's wife. Why they lived in her gaff I have no idea, perhaps it's the same old story with these struggling artist types, maybe she was the one with the job and the money. She certainly was the one with the thatched roof anyway. It still stands to this day and you can go visit it, just mind your head, they were a lot shorter in those days. Part of it was built before the 15th Century so maybe take a hard hat too.

At the top right hand corner is the Coat of Arms of the Shakespeare family, or rather of his father but then he used it too. The emblem in the left corner I haven't been able to identify yet. If you know what it is please tell me, I'd love to know.

The reverse is made from a luxe golden yellow thick velvet and fastens with a matching concealed zip.

Size: Approx 45cm x 70cm

Colours: Cream, Yellow, Brown, Black, White, Orange-Red. Yellow reverse.
