Description

One exquisite Antique Aubusson cushion, beautifully handmade with a silk backing and all our Aubusson cushions are feather filled.  The Aubusson faces of these cushions are original French tapestries from the late 19th century which have been conserved where necessary and then made into these elegant decorative cushions.

We try to have our antique cushions available in pairs, and this one works well with ref. 9380 you can view here which is from them same tapestry. Please view all the images to see the two cushions together.

We have a good selection of antique Beauvais tapestry cushions, antique Aubusson cushions as well as contemporary pillow cushions from Suzani design cushions and Ikat cushions which are silk and wool all hand-produced in Turkey.

Purchase any of our cushions online and we will securely wrap them up and ship them to your home.

. . .

The Aubusson manufacture of the 17th and 18th centuries managed to compete with the royal manufacture of Gobelins Tapestry and the privileged position of Beauvais tapestry.  Aubusson carpets were produced in the upper valley of the Creuse in central France, possibly developed from looms in family workshops established by Flemings that are noted in documents from the 16th century.

Typically, Aubusson tapestries depended on engravings as a design source or the full-scale cartoons from which the low-warp tapestry-weavers worked. As with Flemish and Parisian tapestries of the same time, figures were set against a conventional background of verdure, stylized foliage and vignettes of plants on which birds perch and from which issue glimpses of towers and towns.
