Bronte Porcelain’s collection of Tropical Butterflies Jewellery Boxes is available exclusively from our website, and offers wonderful examples of the fine ceramic art in which we specialise, created entirely by hand in our Worcestershire studios to the highest quality standards.
The challenge of reproducing the delicate and exotic beauty of tropical butterflies, with their gossamer wings and iridescent colours, on fine bone china requires all the skill and technical expertise of our team of artists and craftspeople. First, the box itself is cast from fine bone china, fired, glazed and fired once more before the artist begins the careful task of decorating the cover. In order to recreate perfectly the glowing colours of the tropical butterflies, as well as a standard palette of ceramic colours the artist also applies metallic paints and lustres to build up the image in stages, with the box lid returned to the kiln after each stage to seal the colour into the glaze. The end result is worth all the effort; somehow the very essence of these delicate creatures has been caught, captured for ever in ceramic colours that will never fade.
Each butterfly jewellery box is supplied in a hand-made, silk-lined presentation box. To make the perfect give even more personal, we can even add a personal inscription of your choice. Perfect for larger pieces of jewellery, or simply as a wonderful item for display, the Tropical Butterflies box would delight any connoisseur of fine ceramic art.
