Magpie Spoonbill Espresso Set China Cup Coffee Birds John James Audubon
These 2 elegant coffee cups decorated with a bird called Roseate Spoonbill are part of a range that presents a work emblematic of Birds of America by John James Audubon, considered one of the most beautiful ornithological work ever made.
Audubon was well known for his extensive studies documenting all types of American birds. He was an ornithologist, naturalist and painter, best known for his pioneering color plate book, The Birds of America.
Each of the fascinating illustrations of the 19th century took sixty hours of work in Audubon and the historical book contains more than four hundred races, some of which are now extinct.
The Birds collection features detailed life-size watercolors and brings the work to life in a variety of paintings, including ceramics, cushions and incredible wall hangings.
