'Treasure Tree' Venetian Red or Elizabethan Ochre

85.00

Down a winding Dorset lane, over a steep Dorset hill and past a number of crumbling Dorset cottages you will find Bonfield Block Printers. Tradition runs through the heart of Bonfield, working in old block printing methods embedding rural folklore into their imagery. Tales of the land, the folk that worked it and the stories that have been left behind. Cameron Short and Janet Tristram work out a beautiful shop that they saved from developers, adding very little but restoring plenty. Bonfield Prints are a nod to a time gone past, yet they embody a relevance today that we think is vital as our countryside faces seemingly unstoppable changes. 

'Treasure Tree' depicts a thieving magpie behind a tangle of treasure-adorned oak and ivy branches. Her hoard includes, among other things: a Georgian intaglio ring, a silver fork, an assortment of earrings, a seafarer's mother of pearl button, a Roman coin ring and, in her nest, an egg with a difference.

A large, square, hand block-printed cushion in 'Venetian Red' or 'Elizabethan ochre' on high quality Russian linen. Backed in a natural jute hemp with raw edging. Block-printed maker's label. Cushion pad (inside) is 100% cotton and filled with duck feathers.
