On the second day of our Interiors Advent Calendar, we are looking at marvellous ways to decorate the home. Beauty comes in a variety of shapes and colours, and when it’s combined with the sheer joy and novelty of a circus theme… well, we have a winner.
David Linley proposes this absolutely stunning circus-themed jewellery box, gorgeously hand-crafted with a mixture of red, white and grey tinted Bolivar veneers. The circular tent pegs and the delicate flags that adorn the front and sides of the box are sculpted from a mother of pearl inlays, which gives this object a natural shimmer from every angle.
The removable interior compartment is lined with exquisite Majilite faux suede, and handmade cushions with hand-stitched bow handles that are nestled into each nook and cranny, to keep your jewellery safe.
A splendid highlight is the engravable sterling silver plaque that is mounted on the lid, making this box a potentially perfect gift for someone you love. The elegant tear drop nickel feet are the finishing touch that one would expect from a David Linley design.
Each Circus Jewellery Box takes over 100 hours to create, making this a superb work of art, stylishly defined by the impeccable attention to detail—visible in every joint, every stitch, every inlay and layer of polish. So, if you’re planning to spoil someone this Christmas, this should definitely be at the top of your Santa list.
