Product Description

Closely related to – and easily confused with – the Willow Tit, the Marsh Tit is mainly brown in colour but has a dark ‘bib’, a pale front and a shiny black cap. Although there are subtle differences between the two birds, and the Marsh Tit is in some ways slightly ‘neater’ than its close cousin, the simplest way to distinguish between them is from the sound of their calls. Marsh tits also tend to feed on the ground more than other tits, and are less frequent visitors to garden feeders and bird tables. The two birds are indeed so similar that it was only at the end of the nineteenth century that naturalists realised they were separate species.


The characteristic markings of the Marsh Tit are expertly captured on the lid of this large trinket box. Cast in fine bone china, the box is decorated by hand with a delightful image of the bird perching among some delicate yellow flowers. So lifelike is the result that you almost expect to be able to feel the texture of the feathers and the delicate petals, yet all of these details are sealed for ever beneath the fine, flawless glaze, in colours that will never fade. As a finishing touch, the edge of the box lid and the foot line of the base are given a band of 22 carat gold, and we can also add a personal inscription of your choice to make a truly unique gift that is functional as well as decorative.
