Description
The proverb ‘a bird in the hand…’ is first recorded as ‘a byrde yn honde ys better than three yn the wode’, included in a book of commonplaces published c.1530. A handsome and generously-sized tin tray to serve tea or other refreshments, featuring a charming scene of birds, including finches, a song thrush, fieldfare, jackdaw, swallow and, now naturalised, ring-necked parakeet, by contemporary illustrator Emma Bridgewater. The origin of wild parakeets is unknown; one theory suggests a pair escaped from the set of ‘The African Queen’ while filming at Isleworth Studios in 1951.
