For the second year running, we are delighted to unveil the 2019 edition of the hand painted Southend United Football Club bauble, titled ‘The Field of Dreams’.
Depicting Father Christmas, with the number 25 adorned on his famous red jacket, standing on the Roots Hall pitch looking back on his childhood dream of playing football while knowing of his lifelong commitment to being the big man in red. A celebration of the childhood sports star in us all.
Each glass work of art has been individually painted using small painting hooks lowered into the inside of the bauble through a small opening at the top of the item, from which the interior surround is carefully painted.
In collaboration with the football club, each white presentation box has been signed by one of the 2019/20 Southend United team, including manager Sol Campbell.
Each item purchased will be randomly selected, with orders over one decoration having a different signed box†. Within the gift box comes an information card, providing a background to the craft and history of inside painting and a card of authenticity from Southend United Football Club.
This item is painted in a limited edition batch of 200 works of art only.
Orders placed by 3pm GMT will be dispatched the same working day by Royal Mail First Class post, with an expected delivery to destinations within the UK within 1 working day.
