In medieval times, Goldfinchs were known as Thisteltuige or Thistle-tweaker, due to their fondness for thistles, teasels and knapweeds. Their long fine beaks allow them to extract otherwise inaccessible seeds from thistles and teasels. The collective noun for a group of Goldfinches is a charm, an archaic word meaning a magic song or spell.
About the Prints
Súileir original prints are printed on premium stock acid-free Canson Lustre paper and mounted with Larson Juhl acid-free archival mount board. They are mounted with a bevelled mount and carefully framed with handcrafted solid wood bevelled frames. All our wooden frames use wood sourced from sustainable forests. Many of our prints are digitally signed and embossed with our signature seal.
To keep your print as safe as possible, we use high-quality clear perspex glazing on our shipped framed prints. On our click-and-collect prints, we use 2mm clear float glass. All our unframed prints are sent flat, with bevelled mount, backing board and print sleeve. All framed and unframed prints are wrapped in tissue paper with a branded card and carefully placed in cardboard boxes with our branded stamp and labels, making our prints an ideal gift.
