Description

The common toad's Latin name is Bufo spinosus or bufo bufo, but is usually referred to in Jersey using the Jerriais (Jersey Norman French) name 'Crapaud'. Jersey is the only Channel Island with these native toads.  It walks or hops rather than jumps as frogs do, is brown or olive in colour and has a warty skin, which tends to be drier than that of frogs.

Once a familiar sight in Jersey’s ponds and waterways, however in recent years the Crapaud has been declining in numbers and has been disappearing from the natural areas where it was once common.

Catherine Best commissioned a limited edition bronze ‘Crapaud’ to highlight the plight of the little toad which has been depicted by the sculptor, leaping from a map of Jersey.

The 'Mallards in Flight' small bronze was a gift which was much appreciated by the recipient (of course!). The package arrived in good order, excellent time, well wrapped and padded. The bronze is delicate and beautifully cast, one thing I cannot work out is why there are 2 prongs on the tail feathers.... I will be buying some more in the near future. Catherine and her team of merry jewellers are dedicated to quality; as I type I am looking at a ring they made me which is always commented on, I whole heartedly recommend Catherine and her creative team as well as these lovely bronzes.

Madeleine
