‘Battle Of Britain’ is a high quality, large-size silk pocket square with hand-rolled and hand-sewn hem. It is made in Macclesfield the traditional home of English silk printing and presented in a complimentary gift box. It was created using the famous painting, 'Battle Of Britain' by artist Paul Nash (1889-1946), in collaboration with the Imperial War Museums (IWM). Dating from 1941, Nash’s original work was painted in oils on canvas and was one of four large works on the theme of aerial conflict commissioned from him by the War Artists’ Advisory Committee. The Chairman of the Committee, Kenneth Clark, recognised the allegorical nature of the painting, where it appears that defences rise out of the English landscape and attackers plummet to the earth that has defeated them.

 

Nash had wide ranging artistic and literary talents but is often remembered as a surrealist and war artist of both World Wars. ‘Battle Of Britain’ is reproduced with a good balance of colour between the printed and reverse side of the silk pocket square to work perfectly with any pocket square fold. The artwork is framed by the pocket square’s lilac blue border and cloud white hand-finished hem. The 'Battle Of Britain' silk pocket square makes an ideal gift for men who admire the heroics of the pilots who fought during the world's first major battle featuring only air forces. Inside each high-quality Otway & Orford branded gift box the pocket square has been carefully wrapped in tissue and is accompanied by a card telling the story of the artist and his artwork.
