Product Description

As its name suggests, the Great Tit is the largest of the tits found in the British Isles, and can be distinguished from other species not only by its greater size but also by its green and yellow plumage and glossy black cap and its distinctive two-toned song. Originally a woodland bird, it has readily adapted to man-made habitats and is now a familiar and welcome visitor to our gardens, although it can at times behave aggressively and use its larger size to drive off smaller tits from the bird table.

Exclusively for our website, we have chosen to depict this charming bird on an elegant bone china tray, 170mm (6¾ inches) wide and 130mm (5 inches) deep, a perfect canvas for our artist to capture the very essence of the great tit as it balances carefully on a stalk of grass. After the tray has been cast in bone china, glazed and fired, the artist creates the image entirely by hand, using fine brushes to define every detail of the plumage and building up the bird’s distinctive colouring with careful applications of pigment; a small but exquisite piece of ceramic art.

As a finishing touch, the outer rim and the foot of the tray are given a band of 22 carat gold, and there is also the option to add an inscription of your choice to create a unique and personal gift. If you would prefer a tray with a different type of bird, why not contact us to discuss what is involved in commissioning a special piece of your own?
