Jewelry or Trinket Box with Beaded Renaissance Pomegranate Motif
A fabulous gift for any lady of fashion, the trinket box measures 6-1/4? square by 3-3/4? deep.
The top inset is a beaded rendering of a renaissance pomegranate motif.
The pomegranate figures largely in the mythologies of many cultures, most often symbolizing fertility and prosperity.
Many ladies of note used the pomegranate as their heraldic badges during the renaissance.
Perhaps the best known is Catherine of Aragon, whose symbol was a crowned pomegranate.
The hinged lid opens to reveal an inner cavity lined with ivory velour, to guard against damage to milady?s keepsakes.
Also on offer is a hand mirror with a slightly different rendering of the pomegranate motif using the same beads.
Buy the pair, and we?ll refund ten per cent (10%).
It?s truly one of a kind -- just what you?d expect from SPARKLE PLENTY.
