Too Beautiful for Words 5
Nothing that I can say about these boxes will describe them adequately.
They are heart stoppingly touching and beautiful beyond description..
the following item is by Special Order Only.
Y. The Enchanted Ballerina
Box. When I saw this box I was enthralled by it. No box before
has ever caught a facial expression that is this lifelike. This
loves dancing and sees herself on the stage. It is apparent that she
is imagining herself in the part of a prima ballerina taking her
allowing her audience to applaud her remarkable just completed performance.
That's the facial expression. And look at the body of this perhaps
7 or 8 year old child, softly shaped arms and still chubby legs and a
face innocent of anything but her dreams. I recognized this because
that age my daughter wanted desperately to be a ballerina and studied
it and danced constantly. She gave up all of her other activities
every single day. Often I would enter her room which had a mirrored wall
and barr for her practice and she would scramble up quickly hoping
I hadn't seen her in just such a position. She never realized that
I had stood just outside her room watching her. To see her face when
she danced for herself and thought she was alone was a treasured
me. The figure is perfect. The face is completely defined with every
feature sculpted. The tutu is also well defined with the various
layers of tulle
able to be felt. Inside, her dancing slippers and the clasp, a rose from
the bouquet her delighted audience just bestowed upon her. Our
$199.90. An enchanting box. (If you own "Hands Down,
The Best Kids Box Ever" -- you should purchase this piece. It is
a similar type of box and perfect for displaying together.)

Z. The Portrait of a Young
Child Box. From Rochard's Studio Collection comes another just exquisitely
done portrait box, delicately beautiful and in the softest loveliest colors.
A lime ground and shades of pink to deep rose touched with white bring
the rose on the lid of the box alive. The lid motif is repeated on the
base of this small oval box. Lift the lid and there is the Portrait of
a Young Girl.The portrait, as with the others in this series, is done
by transfer but it is so perfectly done that only a master could have
done it. The inside of the box is white with tiny pink polka dots and
the rose motif is repeated in the center of it. The clasp is a rose, of
course. (You will find others similar to this box in the Studio Collection
segments.) Retail: About $249.00. Our price: $224.90. NEW and literally
"Too Beautiful for Words".
BB. The Rose Bombé
Perfume Chest. We've had this shape several times in perfume boxes
and always they are much loved by our audience. This one was so charming
that I couldn't pass it by. It is light and gay and romantic looking all
at the same time. The pink rose in relief that tops the box repeats the
rose in the florals that decorate each side of the box. The feet are lacy
gold metal. Open the lid and there is a blue jewel topped flacon sitting
in a frame of delicate gold lace that matches the feet. A French bow for
the clasp. Retail: About $275.00. Our price: $248.90. NEW and "Lovely
to Look At."
The following item is
by Special Order only
CC. The Wings of a Butterfly Heart Box. There
are not many butterfly boxes that I care for. Somehow they never
you have ever looked
at one closely, have wings that are nearly transparent. What stops them
from being transparent is the soft powdery substance that covers
giving them their coloring. They are so thin and delicate that if you
handle them the wings are very easily damaged and the color comes
with just a touch.This butterfly appears to be that light and delicate
and that's why I loved this box immediately that I saw it. The
of the box lends to the light and airy feeling. Inside one of the pink
posies repeated. The clasp another. Our price: $142.90. Encore
the following item is by Special Order Only.
DD. The Princess Pug on The Throne Box. Dogs haven't appeared in
this segment before but this tiny Princess is sitting on a handsome and
rather elaborate chair and I thought she deserved to be singled out and
treated like the Princess that she obviously is. She is belled and wearing
a red ribbon collar. The chair is a tapestry covered piece with an embroidered
lattice pattern done in gold. Would anyone but a Princess think to sit
on this? Inside a gold bow, painted and the clasp another gold bow. Retail:
About $273.00. Our price: $245.90. NEW and very royal indeed.
