This Penguin Rectangular Trinket Tray designed for all Antarctic enthusiasts featuring 8 much loved species of Penguin, is just the right size for keeping all those bits and pieces in one place that you can never just put your hand on!
Designed by Susan to feature as part of our new polar range and decorated with Susan’s original hand drawn images of these fascinating flightless aquatic birds, this Rectangular Tray details the various different species that inhabit the Southern Hemisphere; featuring in the starring role are The Rockhopper, Chinstrap, Emperor, King, Adelie, Macoroni, Magellanic and Gentou species..
Did you know that it is a myth that these birds can only live in cold climates? The Galapagos species of this bird for example, lives on tropical islands at the equator. Follow this link for more information about the History of the Penguins.
The largest of these fascinating birds is the Emperor Penguin which is known for its stately demeanour and its black and white colouration with areas of yellow on the head, neck and breast whilst the smallest of these birds is The Little Blue Penguin or Fairy Penguin which is native to Australia and New Zealand.
This traditional plate is hand-made and hand-decorated by one of our skilled china makers in the Longton district of Stoke-on-Trent – a region that has a long tradition of bone china production. It is one of the most difficult pieces for the china makers to produce due to the large single flat surface area. We at Susan Rose China are proud to support British manufacturing at its finest.
This lovely Penguin design is also featured on our tankard mugs where the names of these birds together with Susan’s sketches are woven into a hand-drawn design and also the heads of these Penguins can also be seen on our traditional Cake Plate – a beautiful piece at any time of year but is the perfect complement to your festive eating celebrations!
The piece is finished with a hand-painted Black Rim to add that modern contemporary feel to a traditional piece of English bone china.
