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.

A Perfect 14th Wedding Anniversary Gift

With Ivory being the acknowledged gift for a 14th Wedding Anniversary, the next best thing would be the Elephant itself ! So I went on line and put in Elephant sculptures and low and behold I hit upon Catherine Best. I ordered both the Elephant Sculpture and the Walking Elephant Sculpture, as one on its own would be lonely and it was not long before they arrived. Smaller than I had anticipated, but nonetheless very detailed and lovely and heavy. They were a perfect gift and now have pride of play on my wife's bedside table. Thank you Catherine Best for such service and such quality.

Just a little unstable

The delivery, service and value are what I always get from Catherine Best- excellent. Unfortunately, whilst the bronze is very appealing, it is a little unbalanced, which means that unless placed down extremely gently it is prone to tip over with the birds falling to the surface. Obviously we will be keeping it, but I suggest the 'trim' is corrected for later sales Sorry
