'Battle of Britain' silk pocket square (42 x 42cm)

£70.00

Overview: ‘Battle of Britain’ is a stylish and unique pocket square in silk with hand-sewn hem. It was created using artist Paul Nash's famous 'Battle of Britain' painting and is presented in a complimentary gift box. Made in England. Size 42cm x 42cm. Price £70. Free shipping in the UK.

Design & Inspiration: 'Battle of Britain’ is a stylish and unique full-size pocket square in silk and has been created using the famous aerial combat painting, 'Battle of Britain', by celebrated artist Paul Nash (1889-1946) in collaboration the Imperial War Museums (IWM). Nash had wide-ranging artistic and literary talents and was one of the most significant landscape painters of the first half of the 20th century. He is often remembered as a surrealist and war artist of both World Wars.

Dating from 1941, Nash’s original work was painted in oil on canvas and was one of four large works on the theme of aerial conflict commissioned from him by the War Artists’ Advisory Committee. The Chairman of the Committee, Kenneth Clark, recognised the allegorical nature of the painting, where it appears that defences rise out of the English landscape and attackers plummet to the earth that has defeated them.

Printed in Macclesfield, the home of English silk printing, the artwork is reproduced with a good balance of colour between the printed and reverse sides of the silk pocket square to work perfectly with any pocket square fold. The image is framed by the pocket square’s lilac blue border and cloud white hand-rolled & hand-sewn hem.

'Battle of Britain' is presented in a complimentary Otway & Orford branded gift box with its blueberry-coloured lid and pale blue base. Inside each box, the high-quality aviation silk pocket square is tissue-wrapped and accompanied by a card telling the story of the artist and his vibrant artwork.

Price: Pocket squares sold outside the UK are provided Delivery Duties Unpaid (DDU). See below for more information.
