This delightful heart-shaped Trinket Box would make a wonderful present for someone you love, but it would be just as appropriate as a thoughtful gift for a wedding or anniversary too. With a depth of 125mm (5 inches) and a height of 55mm (2 inches) it’s big enough for practical use, and would look wonderful on a dressing table, but it’s also a delightful decorative item in its own right.
Carefully cast in fine English bone china, the box is then coated with a thin layer of glaze and fired in the kiln. On the heart-shaped cover our artist then creates a wonderfully lifelike bouquet of pink Sweet Peas. The delicate petals and subtle shading, together with the flowers’ foliage, is created entirely by hand, using fine brushes and special ceramic colours to capture every last detail. In the traditional language of flowers Sweet Peas stand for delicate pleasure and bliss; what could be more appropriate for this romantic, heart-shaped trinket box.
Do bear in mind, however, that because everything we make is painted entirely by hand it’s perfectly possible to choose another flower for your trinket box; please see our commissions page or contact us for more details about bespoke items. But whatever subject you choose, you can always ask us to add a hand-applied personal message to create a truly unique and memorable gift.
The finishing touch is to add a band of 22 carat gold to the edge of the box lid and also around the base, before it is packed in a hand-made, silk-lined presentation box.
