This is our Border Reiver, The Galashiels War Memorial statuette. Its a scale relica of the beautiful 'Fletcher' sculpture in the Border town of Selkirk. The sculpture is made in the 8 inch scale and we include the wooden base and the engraved brass plate as standard.
Following the battle of Flodden in 1513 where the Scots army was massacred by English longbowmen, a few survivors staggered back to their villages bringing the terrible news that not only was the army lost but the English were close behind. Fletcher, a townsman from Selkirk in the Scottish Borders is immortalised in a life size bronze. This is a faithful copy in an 8" Scale.
In an effort to be more sustainable we've had our outer packaging redesigned to be fully recyclable. Every statue comes in a simple elegant printed brown box with printed fabric tape.
Inside the box the statue will be protected with bubble wrap and special foam bags to minimise the chance of damage in transit.
