  • Exclusive to Westminster Abbey this decoration is based on the stuffed parrot featured in the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Galleries. African grey parrots are known to have been kept as pets in London from the late 1600's onwards, and the one in the galleries was the companion of Frances Stuart, Duchess of Richmond and Lennox, 1702.

    Made using the traditional method of zardozi embroidery. Zari (meaning gold) embroidery originated in Persia and reached India in the 12th century. It is a highly skilled embroidery technique that traditionally used gold wires and jewels to embellish courtly robes. Zardozi work is a rare and respected craft, the skills of which are handed down from generation to generation.
