The Red Master's Route

The Red Master's Route


The Red Master’s Route is the latest edition to the Winter collection. The hand-painted glass ornament plays tribute - with a hint of humour - to the magic of Father Christmas’ delivery route around the world. When a sleigh isn’t big enough, a classic red Routemaster is the perfect vehicle.

Set in a picturesque English village, a cold, Winter scene is contrasted by the warmth and welcome of The Swan public house, aglow with seasonal merrymaking. A red letter box, empty of its Christmas post sits in the snow-laden landscape, while the cottage of Father Christmas sits still, bar the dimly lit front room and sound of preparation letting you know someone is at work. Yet when the time is right, the light is switched off, the snow crunches beneath heavy boots and the gentle rumble of the Routemaster bus filled with Tom Martin London purple-bowed presents rattles through the village on its way for the annual delivery.

Each of our hand painted glass baubles has been individually decorated 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. 


The item comes packaged in a white presentation box with silver foil decorative detailing, tied with a classic Tom Martin London purple ribbon. With the package comes an information card, providing a background to the craft and history of inside painting.


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.
