The item arrived with the courier in a very secure cardboard box, upon opening the outer box there was a slightly smaller white card box wrapped in bubble wrap to stop any damage occurring in transit.
The smaller white box is very good quality with a perfectly fitting lid, it has one drop down side to make getting the trinket box out a simple task. Around the trinket box there is a layer of foam wrap to protect it against any scuffs or scrapes.
Once you get the trinket box out you are able to admire the tile that is perfectly inset into the lid. The squirrel and balloon image on the tile is beautiful, the quality of the printing is exceptionally good and is sharp and crisp. There is also the option to personalise the tile, I chose to have my son’s names so that I could keep special memories of them within. The typing is very subtle and fits beautifully with the image. The box is made of lacquered wood, I chose to have it in black which offsets the picture perfectly but if you would prefer a different look you can chose from a number of other options.
Upon opening the box you can feel that it is very good quality, it opens very smoothly and feels nice in your hands. The inside of the box is lined with a soft white felt that is perfect to protect the most valuable of possessions.
The underside if the box is also covered with a soft felt (black this time) to prevent it from damaging any surface it may sit on.
The box is a lovely size (available in small 5” and large 7”) and perfect for holding a multitude of small objects, from jewellery to keepsakes, it would be perfect to present a piece of jewellery in for a special celebration or event. Or maybe even to aid in a proposal, “will you marry me?” on the lid and a beautiful ring nestled inside, who could resist?
