This sharp-eyed sparrow is looking rather splendid. Dressed in top hat and cravat, he has all the finery of a Victorian gentleman. And so he should: he’s dressed for a special occasion.
Because whether it’s teatime or a coffee break, a tea party or the finishing touch to a great meal, even the most humble cuppa can be something special. It’s a time to share with a friend, to relax and indulge by yourself, or even to let your imagination run wild.
The teacup, made of fine bone china, comes with a stylish white source with the signature metamorphosis branding. The metamorphosis collection combines a bit of Gothic and Victorian splendour with a modern, understated style.
The elegantly dressed sparrow evokes the work of classic illustrators and beloved children’s books, though with a stylishly modern understated style. Like all the best illustrations, it tells a story of its own.
The sparrow is one of the six original bird illustrations gracing the metamorphosis teacup collection. Each makes a beautifully unique talking point for guests or as an extra touch on some valuable me-time.
