Originally conceived as decorative picture hooks specifically designed for a client to hang his collection of eighteenth century miniatures, allowing them to ‘swarm’ all over a chimney breast in his set of rooms at The Albany in Piccadilly, these charming little pieces were carved in car body filler with a scalpel and pin, and cast in bronze.

Subsequent editions have seen them produced in ormolu, silver and pewter.
