As part of a series commemorating the 50th anniversary of the death of Sir Winston Churchill, Halcyon Days is proud to have created, in collaboration with the National Trust Collections, this stunning Fine Bone China trinket tray featuring one of his most joyous paintings.
Though Churchill only became a frequent guest of la Mamounia Hotel after the Second World War, his love of Marrakesh stretches back to the mid 1930s, when he first discovered the beauty of the ancient Moroccan city; a beauty which, even in the darkest hours of the war, never failed to inspire his painting and calm his spirit. The paintings which he created whilst there, such as this impression of the gardens at la Mamounia, are outstanding for their bright use of colour, vibrancy and joie de vivre.
In keeping with the bright colours of the painting, this new trinket tray has been decorated with an orange base and mounted on silver, forming part of a lucid design which truly captures the essence of the painting's spirit. As ever, this piece has been hand crafted in England by our in-house artists, making this an appropriate and cheerful way of celebrating Winston Churchill, the artist.
