White porcelain or ceramic animal and bird figurines have been popping up in Elle Deco and Living Etc for a while now. They add a kind of kitsch cool to any room or colour scheme.
However, they also usually have a ridiculously high designer price tag attached. Until now…
Three forward-thinking stores have all come up with purse-friendly porcelain parrots. The one on the top left is from Homebase (www.homebase.co.uk) and is a bargainous £9.99; while the one on the top right is £16.95 from hip homestore Ribgy and Mac (and officially, it’s a Cockatoo) www.rigbyandmac.com. The unglazed porcelain parrot below is £12.50 (was £25) from An Angel At My Table www.anangelatmytable.com
I think any of them would look a very pretty Polly indeed perched on a bookshelf or mantlepiece!
