A rare limited edition crummles enamel trinket box featuring the famous beatrix potters robin redbreast. The robin is sitting among branches, leaves and berries of holly. Mint condition, new and unused. The box has a pretty delicate drawing of a robin taken from the books of beatrix potter.
This is really beautiful example of the wonderfully delicately executed drawings and paintings characterised by crummles. The sides and base of the box is a pretty rich red colour. Inside the box is white and on the lid is a delicate line drawing of a scroll tied by roses.It comes with the olive green crummles gift box and original leaflet. The thimble will be included but has no box. These are both made by the famous artisan makers of traditional enamel boxes, crummles, proud producers of english enamels. A wonderful little box that has a gold rim, hinge and clasp. The gift box and enamel box are in perfect condition as is the thimble.
The box measures approx 4. Cm diameter and 2.75 cm high. Ideal for fans of micheal petherick's youtube channel doing it ourselves, or the chateau diaries. A lovely addition to a dressing table or shelf.The crummles enamel box section is near the bottom of the sections in my shop. I will have a lot as the owner of crummles has given me his archives. Many will be unique that have never been offered for sale. The enamel boxes are made in the traditional way used in the 18th century on copper and fired several times as the artists build up the colours. Feel free to message me if you would like any more information. Please note, rings not included.
