The pure and delicate fine bone china of Bronte’s medium-sized round trinket box is eminently suited to the fragile beauty and subtle colouring of these anemones. The three beautiful, pale blue flowers are painted entirely by hand, with every detail of the petals, stems and foliage captured perfectly. Working on a canvas only 78mm (3 inches) across, our artist uses the finest brushes and the most delicate handiwork to create a stunningly life-like image, the frail beauty of these charming flowers captured for ever in colours that will never fade.
The anemone takes its name from Greek, meaning ‘daughter of the wind’, an eminently suitable name for these delicate blooms that move so enchantingly in the breeze. In the language of flowers the anemone often stands for anticipation, but they can also carry the sadder meaning of fading hope, a symbolism that stands in contrast with the uplifting beauty and freshness of the flowers themselves.
To create this delightful trinket box, the box and its lid must first be cast in fine bone china, fired and glazed before the artist begins work. It will take several applications of colour, and further firings after each, to build up the depth and perspective of the image, before the finishing touch is applied with a band of 22 carat gold around the rim of the cover and the foot of the box. We can also add a unique hand-painted inscription of your choice to the box, to make it a truly personal gift.
