The story reveals how one day Baroness Rothschild went for a stroll in her garden in Vienna and lost the pearl necklace she was wearing. An exhaustive search by her staff yielded nothing. A few days later, a gardener noticed the birds were excitedly chirping and fluttering around something and he went over to investigate. That is when he discovered the birds had taken a liking to the Baroness’ necklace which was caught on a tree branch
In 1860, this story inspired the creation of the Rothschild Bird pattern which was so well-received that soon similar bird designs were being produced by almost every major European porcelain manufacturer.
With this introduction we celebrate Rothschild Bird and all of its many moods with a covered urn featuring all 12 motifs as well as all of the border colors that have been presented over the years. Available in a limited edition of 250, the urn is inscribed with a special commemorative anniversary logo which reads “Rothschild Bird 150th Anniversary”. Limited Edition 250.
