Miniature Treasure.

My next piece of work is something quite special and will be housed in another special piece which i will keep you updated on.

 
 
Measuring just 13mm tall this 9ct Gold hallmarked jug is a replica of a roman wine jug complete with pattern embossed into the metalwork itself as the real jug would have had. This little treasure will be housed in a tiny ivory casket which is my next project along with another tiny piece of history. Im certainly looking forward to making this next piece as i have a great interest in history and incorporating it into pieces i make as and when i can.
A happy easter weekend to everyone. Tony.

    1. Thanks Catherine i've had this jug for a while and always thought it looked lost on its own so incorporating it and combining it into another piece of work will hopefully give it a new sense of direction.
