Coronation Cushion

A few months ago the History Channel showed a series of documentaries on the tragic love story of Wallis Simpson and Edward VIII. This unassuming cushion is a small memento of George VI's coronation and a poignant reminder of the turmoil the relationship caused within the royal family ending in Edwards decision to abdicate.  

I am going to seal the leather and then use this great item to construct a small painting seat, I hope it will live up to Keith Prowse's promise of being the "best seat."
