These frost resistant decorative pieces can be used as wall decor in many different situations in the home and garden: on a mantel piece or beam, on or over a door, kitchen splash back, in a porch, conservatory, gardens, gate/gate post, built into risers of steps or patio/courtyard wall, just to name a few.
Strawberry Thief was designed by William Morris in 1883 with birds drawn by his architect friend Philip Webb. Strawberry Thief was inspired by the Morris family efforts to grow strawberries at their home Kelmscott Manor. The family were thwarted by thrushes who would creep under the netting and eat the fruit. Morris insisted that the birds be left undisturbed.
