The Clematis Jewellery Box brings an elegant, contemporary style to a traditional gift, and it would be just at home on a dressing table as it would in a china cabinet. Cast from fine English bone china, the circular box, with a diameter of 215mm (8½ inches) and a depth of 50mm (2 inches), is big enough to accommodate even larger pieces of jewellery, making it a practical gift as well as a wonderfully decorative one.
The clematis is well known for its vigorous climbing ability, scrambling up trees and walls, or over frames or pergolas, then from winter into late summer producing a wonderful mass of beautiful purple flowers. It is these colourful blooms that have been so brilliantly captured by our artists, their variegated shades contrasting with the pure white of the bone china. The composition has a subtle, contemporary feel, combining the finest traditional artistry with a modern elegance. In the language of flowers the clematis stands for art, agility and ingenuity, making it a perfect symbol of and subject for the skills of Bronte’s craftspeople.
Once the box has been cast and glazed, our artist uses the smooth, white bone china of the box’s cover as a canvas, building up the brilliant colour of the clematis flowers in stages, before it is fired in the kiln to seal the image permanently into the fine glaze. If you wish, we can also add a personal message by hand to the box, to make a truly unique gift. The Clematis Jewellery Box is supplied in a hand-made, silk-lined presentation box.
