Luxury pleasures by Fornicouture. Leda Silver Diletto from the Art Series of Fornicouture, design by AHH.

Concept:
A sudden blow: the great wings beating still.
Above the staggering girl, her thighs caressed.
By the dark webs, her nape caught in his bill,
He holds her helpless breast upon his breast.
How can those terrifies vague fingers push
The feathered glory from her loosening thighs?
And how can body, laid in that white rush,
But feel the strange heart beating where it lies?’
Leda and The Swan, W.B. Yeats, 1924

The Greek myth of Leda and the swan describes Zeus, God of Kings, appearing before Leda, Queen of Sparta, as a swan before raping / seducing her. The story has inspired a number great works of art by artists such as Michaelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. The Yeats poem communicates the full romance and violence of the story.

Composition:
Leda’ is hollow cast brass to give the best cast surface while offering weight and density. ‘Leda’ is plated in sterling silver (approximately 15 microns) and polished to a high sheen finish. 100% handmade in England.

Care:
Wash in warm, not hot, soapy water. Use a clean soft cloth to gently rub dry. Gently buff the shine. Polish if tarnish develops on the silver. Specialist silver polishes are the best option.
