cm square

Comments:
This padded cushion is made of blue silk, with a Grant silk ribbon on the front.

There is no makers name on the cushion, although it is confirmed that the silk picture was woven by Grant, as, apart from the words at the bottom, the woven silk is identical to the image used on the bookmark from the exhibition, titled City of Edinburgh, 1886 / (Coat of Arms) / Peace hath her victories . . / (view of buildings with fountain in front) / International Industrial Exhibition [recorded as gb180 on this site].
