This large and elegant Trinket Box is both eminently practical and wonderfully decorative, just at home on a dressing table or sideboard as in a display cabinet or on a dresser. With a width of 125mm (5 inches) and a height of 55mm (2 inches), the oval box has plenty of room for precious things, while it will surely become a treasured item in its own right.
To decorate this box our artists have chosen a cluster of three cheerful pansies. In recognition of the variety of colours in which the pansy is found, each of the three is a different shade, but all display the wonderful depth and variety of marking that makes this one of our most popular garden flowers.
The large oval cover of the trinket box provides a perfect canvas for our artists to demonstrate their skills. After the box has been cast in fine bone china and a thin, transparent glaze has been applied and fired into place, the artist begins work, gradually building up the image using special ceramic pigments to create a work of art that fills the whole of the space. It will take not only time and patience but several applications of colour to complete the image, and the cover will return to the kiln after each of them. The finishing touch is to add a band of 22 carat gold around the edge of the cover and the base, and perhaps also to include a personalised message of your choice, to commemorate a special occasion or simply to create a truly unique gift for someone special.
