The hands of friendship, the heart of love, and the crown of loyalty. The 1689 Irish design by Richard Joyce to his love has endured as a token of commitment and eternal unity.
Since 1974 Mullinger Pewter has designed striking lead-free, hand finished and long lasting pewter products which include this exquisite jewelry box of ornate Celtic knots and artwork which bands around the entire base and lid.
A durably hinged lid opens to a mint red felt interior of three sections, the center cushioned in four rows for "the ring" plus more.
A timeless family heirloom piece of love to be cherished and passed on through the generations.
Origin: Ireland; pre-owned
Dimensions: 6 7/8"L x 3 7/8"D x 2 3/4"H
Condition: Very Good/Great. There is some light scuffing to the claddagh plate that is seen when the box is angled under light. To the eye it appears to be beneath the polish, which is nicely smooth, shiny, and with no wear.
There are very minor signs or prior ownership- a light 1/8 inch scrape beneath the lid opening, a very, very small spot felt to the finish near the right claddagh hand and two small dark marks and two tiny imperfections to the corner rear base which could very well be from the joining of the corner ends during manufacturing.
The interior of the box is pristine, smells like new, and does not appear to have been used or opened.
