Royal Crown Derby Royal Robin
Launch Date: October 2010
The Robin is one of our most distinct and popular British birds, and was once voted as the national bird of Great Britain. They are often associated with Christmas, and regularly feature on cards, wrapping paper and other festive odds and ends! They were nicknamed in the 19th century when the postmen wore red waistcoats as part of their uniform, and were called ‘Robin Red Breasts!’ You will often hear them warbling and chirping as, unlike some birds, they sing all year round. Our original Robin was launched in 1989 and has been a consistent best seller ever since. This beautiful new Robin is decorated with the same fabulous red breast but this time the wings and plumage have been decorated in tones of earthy brown and amber. Delicate gold flecks in 22 carat gold create a textured look for this delicate new piece
