Exclusive to The National Archives.

This swan design is very special to us at The National Archives as not only is it based on one of our documents (BT 43/101/313051) but we also have a pair of resident swans who live here in our grounds.

This glass bauble was inspired by an 1877 wallpaper design by Walter Crane held at The National Archives. Best known as a painter and illustrator Crane believed passionately that objects for the home, such as wallpaper, should be equal in beauty to paintings and sculptures. 

The bauble inspired by Walter Crane's Swan Rush and Iris design is hand-painted on the inside and come with individual cloth-covered gift boxes - ideal both for Christmas or as a year-round ornament!
