de Havilland DH.104 Dove Round Acrylic Ornament
Developed during WWII to meet a UK government specification for a regional feeder airliner, the DH.104 Dove was innovative in having a retractable landing gear, all-metal construction, and modular components to speed maintenance operations.
Seating typically 8-10 passengers, the Dove entered service in 1946, and was popular with both airlines and corporate flight departments. A total of 544 were built through 1967.
An artistic interpretation of the aircraft’s side and top views is laser-engraved with exacting detail onto a round acrylic crystal ornament, measuring approximately 3.4 inches in diameter, with a material thickness of 1/8 inch. For best display clarity, the design is engraved as a reversed mirror image on one side of the ornament, so that it can be viewed with proper alignment on the opposite side.
As a gift, or as a treat for yourself, these are a perfect way to add your favorite airplanes of the past to your today! Use them to decorate for the holidays, or to brighten up your desk, office, or special area of your home or work space all year long.
