This is a larger version of the Forget-me-Not Storybox, set inside a beautiful mid 1800’s deep red, studded casket box, with fully functioning lock and key. It stands on 4 antique turned bone game counters.
Inside, it is lined with fragments of antique silk, which were originally from an early 1800’s quilt, which have been slow stitched adorned. In the box’s main body sits a lovely spray of forget me nots – a cold-painted vintage brooch.
In the underside of the lid, the words “forget me not” can be found sculpted from wire, and floating above the embroidered silk fragment below.
It measures 12.5 cm high x 7cm wide x 5.5cm deep when closed, and 13.5cm max wide when displayed open.
Please note that items may show signs of age wear, but this is part of their charm and design.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
