The Kinglet Calyptura Silk Pocket Square is part of our William John Swainson Collection, a 19th century British artist and naturalist. This silk pocket square is a perfect addition to both smart and casual jackets. It can be worn in a number of folds and our personal favourites are wearing it as either a three peak or puff. We’ve taken his original sketch and put it pride of place in the centre and then used a lighter version as a repeating pattern in the background. The red border aims to pick up the red in the crest of the bird and offsets against the yellows and greens of the pattern.
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. To read more about his career and further sketches, you can view his Wikipedia page here: William John Swainson.
