Framed Gilded Bumblebee
PLEASE READ BEFORE PURCHASING
I have XL, Large, Medium and Small sized bumble bees, in A- or A+ condition. I will send you the best condition bee I have at the time of pre-order.
For reference, Medium sized bees are the size most commonly seen buzzing around. Large ones are big, with the XL size being the rarest size for me to find. XL are only found late in the year and make up less than 5% of the bees I find.
Currently I have a stock of black wooden frames and will cut the mounts myself. However if the pre-order sells out I will upgrade to bespoke frames and mounts (no extra charge). Upgraded frames will be similar sizes and appearance to the pictures but my vary slightly.
Frame size is approx 7" or 18cm.
This is a PRE-ORDER. I will make these to order - meaning I do not have any 'ready to ship'. Please allow approximately 3-4 weeks from date of pre-order to shipping confirmation.
It takes me around 10 days minimum to relax, pin and dry the bees before I can start the multi-stage gilding process. Please do not be the person to email me 'where is my order?'. I am not Amazon, and while I work as fast as I can I cannot speed up this process. You are buying a unique hand made piece of fine art. It will be worth the wait I promise.
Please see the second picture for (approximate) bee size comparison.
A+ means near perfect condition, A- means there may be slight damage ie a missing foot or antenna.
Please note I do not take requests in the comment box at checkout regarding condition of the bee. You will be sent the best condition bee I have in the size you purchase.
Species may vary but are generally a Bombus terrestris or Bombus lucorum.
