Ashmolean Museum Oxford

Blue Bird Cushion


An exclusive cushion inspired by jewellery pieces included in the Colour Revolution: Victorian Art, Fashion & Design exhibition. This cushion design has been created specially for the Ashmolean.

The jewellery behind this collection dates from the late 19th century and was inspired by Japanese art, which had become popular in the Victorian era. These pieces were created by a number of jewellers including Parisian jeweller Alexis Falize, who was among the first to integrate vibrant flower and birds motifs inspired by Japanese prints in his precious enamels.

We Love Cushions are a small specialist cushion company that brings you a distinctive and comprehensive collection of affordable art cushions. All products are made to order, handmade with care in their small factory in North London and therefore carry the authenticity of being 100% made in the UK.

Exclusive to the Ashmolean Museum.
