The Kingfisher Silk Pocket Square is part of our William John Swainson Collection, a 19th century British artist and naturalist. This pure silk pocket square is a perfect addition to both smart and casual wear. The design allows you to wear it in a number of folds and achieve contrasting looks by switching between folds. Our personal favourite is combining a puff with two peaks and creating a half Dunaway. The gold edging matches the Kingfisher itself and is a great offset to the other tones in the square.
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. You can read more about his career on his Wikipedia page here: William John Swainson.
