A rustic metal robin perched on a wooden garden spade handle. Handcrafted garden stake.
This garden stake is a wonderful original gift – designed and handcrafted by The Old Smithy. Ideal in the home or the garden.
The quirky robin with a hand painted red breast perches on a small branch with 2 tactile metal leaves, hand cut and shaped at our forge. The robins wings have added texture and a strong tail.
We twist the metal around the wooden shaft giving a great, spiral effect and lightly burn the wood bringing out the fantastic grain creating a superb finish. The grain is never the same therefore every garden stake is slightly different.
This design is a favourite for our customers at the garden shows we attend.
A light, satin varnish is added for protection.
The sculpture is easy to display with a 13cm/5″ stake to hold it firmly in the ground . (see photo)
Robin body approx. 10cm/4″. Wing length 7cm/3″. Leaf length 11cm/4.5″
Total length of stake (to top leaf) approx. 95cm/37.5″
Wooden shaft 66cm/26″
