Hands up if you're interested in a bit of Lovebird history - excellent.

It appears that one of the earliest references to the term Lovebirds being used to describe a couple was by Geoffrey Chaucer way back in 1383 when he wrote a poem celebrating the first year anniversary of the engagement / wedding between Richard II  and Anne of Bohemia. I won't give you the whole 700 lines of the poem but the one that's relevant is:

"For this was on Seynt Valentyne’s day, whan every foul cometh ther to choose his mate"

These Lovebirds are etched onto their green glass with a patchwork of green below them. The sunshine yellow square has a handpainted bird within just waiting for their mate to join them.

 

Using the traditional methods of copper foiling and leadwork this panel has hanging loops so you can display it in front of a window or on a pale coloured wall.
