This large oval trinket box is big enough to hold small pieces of jewellery or keepsakes, but it is also handsome enough to be displayed in any china cabinet in its own right. Cast from fine bone china, the box is carefully glazed and fired to provide a flawless surface on which the artist can then work his or her magic.
Filling the whole of the box’s cover, this artistic composition features one of our best-loved garden birds, the plucky little wren, perched beside a beautiful, full-petalled pink rose and singing its little heart out; so realistic is the painting that you can almost see the bird trembling as it projects its song at a volume out of all proportion to its tiny size.
Every detail is perfectly captured, from the wren’s plumage, bright eye and cocked tail to the delicate petals of the rose, the green leaves and even the thorns. It will take several applications of colour, and several firings, before the artist’s work is complete. The edge of the box lid is then given a band of 22 carat gold, as is the foot line of the box itself, and we also offer the option of adding a hand-inscribed message for that truly personal touch.
This fine oval box is available only from Bronte’s website, and if you have a preference for a different bird you may even wish to commission a one-off design; for more information see our commissions
