It’s not often that P. Spooner, the well-known European automaton maker, has a new idea for a Valentine’s Day offering. This year is no exception; he made one of these for a secret lover many years ago and almost forgot he’d done it.
Rugged carving and the painterly application of expensive pigments are complimented by the block of Heritage Hardwood on which the figure is mounted. The edition is strictly limited to 000009, nine being the number of hearts that could be drawn on the plank of lime wood that happened to be within easy reach.
As if the item itself is not mouth-watering enough, here’s a description of the box it comes in:
From flat to a finished box in seconds, the Snap Shut box is a Luxury style gift box made with a high quality rigid board. With strong magnetic closures, the lid sounds a pleasing snap when pressed shut.
Each box has a matt laminated finish paired with a beautiful ribbon tab to lift the lid open, this style ensures a classic, rustic style. The laminated finish on these boxes give them a smooth, flawless appearance as well as being very practical as this surface wipes clean if made dirty.
Furthermore, the piece is cocooned in multiple layers of acid-free tissue to ensure its safe arrival, a subtle reminder of the Fairytale wedding dress worn on her special day by the People’s Princess.
