Royal Crown Derby Puffin
Designed by John Ablitt
The puffin is an un-mistakable looking bird, with its black back and white under parts, the distinctive black head with large pale cheeks and a tall, flattened, brightly-coloured bill. Its comical appearance is heightened by its red and black eye-markings and bright orange legs. This clown among seabirds is one of the world’s favourite birds and this piece has captured the true essence of this elusive bird.
