The word ‘Hynaf’, is Welsh for oldest, or elder, we figured that being the largest of the family, Hynaf it would be. The inspiration for the first hare was taken from the hares which box outside of Thea’s mother’s house in the beautiful setting of West Wales. There is something quite magical about a hare, especially in March-April time, when they have the joys of spring under their paws.
Each individual hare is loving hand forged, truly bringing the phrase ‘breathing life into a cold dead piece of metal’ in to effect.
We have sent hares and pairs of hares across the world, we even have some very lucky hares living in Hawaii! We always love seeing them in their new home, so if you have minute to share a photo you can email us or send it via social media.
Each hare is hand finished, initially by wire brushing to make sure they are spruced up and ready to go to the ball! They are then hand painted with several coats of clear lacquer to protect them and completed with a buffing up with graphite paste.
Average height 270 mm
Base 50 mm x 50 mm
With the finishing touch of a baize felt underlining, you are safe in the knowledge that there will be no scratches left from hares paws!
