I've been shopping and found treasure! This beautiful little lidded box painted in pokerwork style, with a touch of gold, is from Terence Stringer Miniatures (here - click on the miniatures index box). Terence makes woodwares and silverware, and Heather does the exquisite painting.
You have to see to believe - it is so finely made! It is well worth a visit to their site to see the extremely high quality minis! In woodware they have Russian nesting dolls, boxes, dummy boards, dolls, eggs, acorns (I love the one with the sleeping fairy), little buildings with tiny people, and more. As for the silver - wow! Lots!! And all amazing. I love the pens!!
They also have Deco figurines and paintings.
