Aluminium Spitfire Sculpture, 80cm
Developed in 1938 from a Schneider trophy-winning design by the aeronautical engineer and designer R.J Mitchell, the Supermarine Spitfire became the hero of the Battle of Britain in the summer of 1940. Spitfires remained in service until 1961 – well into the jet age – by which time more than 20,000 had been produced. In tribute, our Spitfire desk sculpture has been cast in solid aluminium and polished to a high sheen such that its subtle curves and angles catch the light. Image is shown with a £1 coin to demonstrate the scale of this spectacular item.
