The Hummingbird Silk Pocket Square is part of our William John Swainson Collection, a 19th century British artist and naturalist. This pocket square is the perfect addition to both smart and casual wear. The design allows you to wear it in a number of folds and our personal favourite is to show the peaks and make the most of the contrasting blue and white hand rolled edges. We’ve taken one of the Swainson Hummingbirds and used this as the centrepiece and then combined it with his illustration of the Mexican Amethyst Hummingbird for the repeat pattern behind.

William John Swainson William Swainson (8 October 1789 - 6 December 1855) was an English artist, naturalist and ornithologist and is often best remembered for the quality of his zoological illustrations. He was also the first illustrator and naturalist to adopt lithography with the monochrome lithographic prints in his books being hand coloured and it was use of this approach along with his natural talent at illustration that led to his fame.
