From the first time we saw the finished model for the Auld Lang Syne pawn, we knew we had something special. The piece depicts two friends in the moment of parting; one off to conflict in a distant land; the other returning to his life behind the plough; both silently praying that this parting will not be final – and that they will meet again “some ither day”. A true representation of friendship and respect, which can be translated into almost every occasion where people have done something special or are simply special in their own right.
To differentiate from the chess piece, we fashioned a new base, and packaged the figure for gifting in its own faux leather, sprung-lid box with the Robert Burns gold-embossed ‘signature’, all tied in place with - what else? - a special run ribbon of Robert Burns check. Inside the box lid is what you might expect – the parting verses of Auld Lang Syne.
In the case of orders for Special gatherings, Burns Suppers, Weddings and other celebrations, we can produce bespoke inner lid cards, specially printed with any message or logo as befits the intended use. We can also produce a personalised card, for a one-off gift. The Auld Lang Syne figure with personalised presentation can serve splendidly as a meaningful corporate gift.
And for that extra special occasion, like a significant anniversary, retirement or special accolade, the Auld Lang Syne figure can be produced in Sterling Silver on request.
So, whether it’s to celebrate Burns Night; any other event where special people matter; whether it’s to say “I love you”, “I’ll miss you” or simply “thank you for being a friend”, say it with style, and be remembered… for Auld Lang Syne.
