Forget me Not Storybox, Large

Past Pieces

This is a larger version of my 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.
