Made in England. This solid gold albatross will be hand made for you. Please allow up to 30 days manufacturing time.

A solid gold portrait of the enormous, magnificent birds who spend their long lives soaring amid the mountainous seas of the southern oceans. With recorded wingspans of over 12 feet Albatrosses are one of the world’s largest birds.
Yachtsmen and women skilled enough to sail in the high southern latitudes have recorded these giants following their boats for days on end. In days of old the albatross was seen as a fellow traveller, another 'Christian soul', by lonely sailors. They believed the albatross brought good luck for the crew and symbolizes the delicate balance between man and the ocean.

This gold is made from solid 9ct gold that has been given a high-carat gold coating. The albatross measures slightly over 5cm - which is two inches.

The 'grey' albatross shown in some of the pictures is the original, hand carved, pewter master pattern used to make the gold pieces. The ‘stick’ visible on the bottom of the master pattern, in some of the pictures, is a sprue that the molten gold is poured through during production. (it will not be visible on the finished pieces).

This piece can also be made for you in either 18ct yellow, white or red gold, 22ct gold or platinum. Please contact me for a quotation.

Please allow up to 30 days for a solid gold albatross to be made for you.
