Hand Printed Illustrated Tower Bridge Cushion from Mr Wingate

London’s Tower Bridge is one of the most recognised landmarks in Britain’s capital city. This light blue cushion features a hand printed illustration of the famous bridge spanning the River Thames and is ideal for a household with fondness for the city and its architectural and naval history. The beautiful illustration is filled with character and together with the river water and the single boat brings the scene to life. The detailing is quite spectacular and each recognisable part of the well-known bridge has been recorded.

Tower Bridge was completed in 1894 after eight years of construction. Commercial development in the east end of London demanded a new bridge be built. The final design incorporated a bascule bridge (a type of drawbridge) with two towers built on piers. The central span was split into two equal bascules or leaves, which could be raised to allow river traffic to pass. The iconic design is now world famous and has been featured in countless films, dramas, and artistic depictions. This beautiful cushion will sit well in a living room or bedroom with a decidedly London feel or naval theme.
