Royal Crown Derby Paperweight War Pigeon
This item will be hand-crafted especially for you and we will endeavour to deliver the fully finished fine bone china piece within 2 working weeks from the order placement.
Beautifully decorated in line with colours found in wartime propaganda and utilitarian fashion, wartime camouflage techniques have been the source of inspiration with some areas displaying softer feather impressions contrasting other stronger areas that show flecks of 22 carat gold gilded as part of the decoration. The design also features an interpretation of the Dickin Medal with the inscription, "For gallantry we also serve" around the base. The War Pigeon is a fitting piece to complement the current World War 1 Commemorative Collection. Backstamp denotes; "In recognition of all World War II War Pigeons who served alongside the British Military Intelligence Service" and includes a limited edition certificate numbered.
