A Winter's Tale
A walnut trinket box of oval form, having micro-marquetry decoration, which has been created with over 100 pieces of timber per square inch. Finely inlaid into a petite box being only 6.25'' long, 2.25'' wide and 1.75'' high. The design itself has been inspired by the harbinger of spring. The March hare relaxing in a clover meadow, the sense of Shakespeare’s winter’s tale encompasses the majestic animal with spring flowers, each subsiding to the next as summer approaches, just as Shakespeare wrote, observed and immortalised.
The interior of the box features all the flowers mentioned in his poem and the box is accompanied by a handmade scroll of Nepalese Lokta Corn Hai paper on which the poem is written in a copperplate hand.
“It is craftsmanship of the highest quality. I doubt it could be surpassed."
