Hinged lid provides the perfect place to nestle your trinkets
These days, it’s not unusual to see a birdwatcher with binoculars in hand, gaze fixed to the treetops of a wooded park. But it wasn’t so long ago that birds were fancied more for their feathers than for their flight or song. For centuries, hats were the height of fashion, and wearing a panache of colorful plumes on one’s head was a sign of wealth and status for men and women alike. By the Victorian era, it wasn’t uncommon for ladies to walk around with entire stuffed birds atop their hats!
Perhaps you or someone you love can attest to the thrill of glimpsing a kingfisher swoop down for his catch, watching blue jays jostle at the backyard feeder, or hearing a crimson cardinal suddenly burst into song. The universal joy birds inspire is why we’re delighted to unveil our Friends of a Feather Goldfinch Trinket Box, a bejeweled tribute to those jewels of the animal kingdom. Handmade in durable pewter and finished with sparkling enamel and Austrian crystals, this exquisitely rendered bird hinges open to safeguard your treasures.
