Recycled Metal Robin Sculpture

Recycled Metal Robin Sculpture

robin measures approx: 13cm H x 7cm W x 15cm L

Reviews (42)

A delightful little robin made using recycled steel oil drums. After cleaning, the metal is cut into the different elements of the sculpture using a hand-operated guillotine. The metal pieces are then hammered into shape by hand. A framework is welded together and the shaped metal components are attached to it to create the design. Finally, the sculpture is dipped in lacquer, enhancing the patina of the metal and giving a protective coating for outdoor display.

A lovely item to display in the garden or around the home, It would make a super gift too.

Fun fact: In 2015, the profit from this metal robin enabled the National Trust to buy enough stone to build 5,222ft of dry stone walling. That's the length of 17.5 football pitches! The walls are a vital part of our the landscape and boundaries for properties.

The charming metal robin measures approx: 13cm H x 7cm W x 15cm L

Due to the British weather and the material of this product, it is advised to continue to care for this with additional varnish once a year

5 stars Beautiful little Robin Written by

Bought for my Mum, who loves Robins. Very lovely little sculpture. Mum extremely pleased.

5 stars Recipients delighted with these! Written by

I bought these on impulse as small gifts for some neighbours - thought they would cheer a dreary winter's day, and so they did! Both ladies are delighted with them - one robin sits on the sill above the kitchen sink, and the other on top of the radio (marking the station!) Although ordered very late, they arrived before Christmas. I'm delighted because my neighbours love them, they're made from recycled metal and any profit goes to the NT - win win win! 'm now waiting for the ducklings to come back in stock...

4 stars Delightful Robin Written by

I love my metal robin who sits on the outside of my living room window sill looking in to the house. I have also got a large frog, and a large duck and ducklings. They they all looked lovely when first purchased but very sadly they are all rusting away: the frog was the first purchased and he disintegrated very fast to the point that he can no longer be on display. The large duck has moved inside to try to slow the deterioration and now the ducklings and the robin are going the same way. The robin cheers me in the morning as I open the curtains but not for much longer as his legs and feet are rotting very quickly. A lovely way to use recycled metal but I'm so disappointed that they have not been painted in a primer to stop them from rusting.

5 stars A little cheer Written by

I already have a robin to remind me of my Dad and now my Mum has passed too I wanted a 2nd to keep them together on my windowsill. Just a little reminder and a little cheer me up. Perfect.

5 stars Great gift Written by

Bought as a Christmas present for a garden loving relative. She loved it! Looks like it will last well outside in all conditions and is the perfect size. The fact it is made from recycled materials is also a bonus!

5 stars Metal Robin Written by

I purchased 4 of these delightful little birds as Christmas gifts and the smile on the faces from those lucky folk who received them was a joy to see...he is a beauty and have already decided he will be part of my wish list for next year! Thank you National Trust.

5 stars Great gift Written by

Well made and looks as should last a very long time outside. Larger than life but that is good as can be seen more easily outside. Makes great present .

Really pleased. Looks lovely in the garden, excellent delivery from Royal Mail.

5 stars Quirky Garden Gift Written by

I received one of these delightful robin garden ornaments as a birthday gift and love it! The design is cheerful and cheeky and the red breast is eye-catching. I immediately purchased one to give as a gift to another garden-lover, and strongly recommend that you do the same.

Love, kept them and so will be ordering some more (presents)!

5 stars cute robin Written by

This robin is very cute, bought it for the garden but can't bear to put it out there yet. Ideal inside or out.

5 stars Metal robin is a perfect gift Written by

This was a gift for my mother-in-law, and she loves it.

5 stars Charming Written by

Love this! My metal robin sits on the window sill and reminds me of my dearly departed Dad who often visits my garden as a robin redbreast..

5 stars Lovely present from my son Written by

I love my Robin. My husband has fixed it to my garden fork and it has pride of place in my garden. What a great way to recycle metal and brighten up the garden.

5 stars Super Robin! Written by

This is a delightful and charming statue. Perfect for the edge of a pathway. Very pleased with it indeed.

5 stars Charming little Robin iconic British bird. Written by

I saw this on a friend's window sill at Christmas and simply had to have one. I was so interested in how they were made and impressed at the quality. The only thing I was disappointed about was because (presumably) I had purchased this on line there was no explanatory card included with my purchase telling of the history of how it was made. Shame. This would have been more important had it been a present. Perhaps the National Trust can rectify this for future purchasers.

Bought two of these little robins, one as a gift for a friend and the other for myself which has settled itself on my kitchen window sill.

Bought as a present for Dad for Christmas. So happy with it that I'm going to order one for myself. Beautiful & unusual.

5 stars Great metal robin Written by

I saw a couple of these robins in houses I'd visited, and decided I wanted one. I bought 3 others to give to others this Christmas . Each one looks slightly different.

4 stars Robin Written by

The Robin is really cute, but I expected it to be smaller. It's just about 30% too big!

5 stars Chirpy Robin Written by

He flew in on time and there were no ruffled feathers; apart from the real Robin who lives in my garden and isn't too sure at the moment!

5 stars Lovely Robin Written by

This little chap is so cute . At the moment he is sitting on my window sill in the kitchen. Everyone who visits fall in love with him. So glad I bought him

5 stars Jolly Robin Written by

A delightful little bird sculpture which should delight the recipient. Bought as a present for a bird loving friend. It's very well designed and constructed so cleverly.

5 stars Splendid little robin Written by

The little metal robin sits on a garden table directly in front of my kitchen window. He makes me smile every time I look out.

5 stars Quirky & fun Written by

I had seen the Robin in a National Trust shop and was disappointed. Arrived in time for Christmas, well made and a bit of fun. Should last for a long time

4 stars No labels Written by

These robins are delightful and make lovely gifts. I bought three in a shop and they were very successful. So I went on to buy six more on line. The shop bought ones had nice NT labels that explained that the item was made from recycled material and that it can be used outside or inside . The on line shop ones had no labels and they have refused to provide me with any. Very disappointed by this as the information is part of the appeal of the robins. I now have to make my own labels with this information before wrapping them. Also a wasted advertising opportunity. . Poor show NT.

5 stars Delightful item Written by

A delightful item. Very pleased. Can display it inside the house or out in the garden.

4 stars Quality of Robin Written by

I am sorry to say that paint was missing from the breast of the Robin. As it was a gift and had not time to send for replacement I had to try to touch this up myself. I think you should have better quality control and inspection before dispatch.

5 stars Cheeky little chap ! Written by

Purchased as a gift, both I and the recipient are highly delighted with this quirky and excellent value for money robin. It is of a modern style that works very well in the modern home.

5 stars Cheeky Robin Written by

He is a lovely addition to our container front garden. He is quirky and very well made. Also being recycled I feel I am helping the environment. I would recommend without reservation. Bought it for my husband for his birthday.

5 stars Beautiful Written by

Lovely metal robin, came quickly, bought it for a Father's Day present.

4 stars Robin redbreast Written by

Delighted with my online purchase. Saw the robin in one of the National Trust shops which was closed at the time. It looks very realistic sitting on my garden fence.

5 stars Delightful Written by

A friend bought me this robin for a birthday present last year. My mother had often admired it sitting on a table outside the kitchen window so it was an obvious birthday present for her this month.

4 stars Lovely Written by

I bought this as a present for my friend who has a tame robin in her garden; I'm sure she'll love it-I do. The only downside is the cost of postage and packing-it really pushes the cost up.

5 stars Lovely Written by
We had bought a recycled metal robin for my daughter in a remote little village in Provence and she left it behind. It was a little gem. She wanted to put it in a tree in her garden, It was very sad, but I miraculously found one on the National Trust site. It is identical. It came speedily and solved a sad problem. The robin is beautiful. I shall want to collect more. They are so pretty and will survive outside, I feel sure, and they are also most realistic and tasteful. Might bring it in when there is a heavy frost, may be. Thank you

4 stars Fun addition to garden Written by

I bought this for my daughter, I was given the same Robin and she liked it so bought her one,

5 stars Little robin Written by

I just had to buy this little bird as it reminded me of my late father who loved robins. I've positioned it on a small tree stump in the garden and its bright colours really brighten a corner. I feel cheered every time I see it.

5 stars Metal Robin Written by

I bought this cheerful little chappie for my garden. He sits on the top of a pillar, looking in to my kitchen window. His red breast really lights up my view! In the winter, I'm going to decorate him with holly and ivy, so he'll look very festive. He's the perfect splash of colour on a wet day, and is robust enough to stay outside all year round.
