The Owl and the Pussycat
"O let us be married! too long we have tarried:
But what shall we do for a ring?" - Edward Lear
The famous nonsense poem by Edward Lear was first published in 1871. Featuring four animals – an owl, cat, pig, and turkey, the poem tells the story of the love between the title characters, who marry in the land "where the Bong-tree grows".
The term "runcible" as in runsible spoon, was invented for the poem.
The oval shaped ring is approx. 6cm (2.4”) long by 2.5cm (1”) high. The cat is 3cm (1.2”) tall and the owl is 2.2cm (0.9”).
Both napkin rings are presented in an organza gift bag.
All our serviette holders are handmade using polished lead free pewter which is non-tarnishing (that was the lead). Because we use solid metal, the surface of the napkin rings will never flake or rust. Simply wash with warm soapy water to clean.
