Compton Cushion (blue)
Needlepoint kit for cushion or stool top
Designed by William Morris' successor Henry Dearle in 1896 for Compton Hall in Wolverhampton it is one of our most successful designs. This blue version keeps the same basic design in an interesting different colour way. The original colours were soft pinks and browns and can be seen in the brown Compton collection. There is a chair seat, rug and miniature in this group of matching kits.
