Sewing Box

§ Volete vedere qualcosa di magnifico ?
Qualcosa di così bello che non si riesce a smettere di toccarlo ?

§ Do you want to see something magnificent ?
Something so beautiful that you cannot stop touching it ?

§  Questo è il mio ultimo acquisto, una Scatola da Cucito opera di un miniaturista Inglese, Tony .
Potete seguire sul suo blog la storia della nascita della scatola e delle sue peripezie.

§ This is my last buying , a Sewing Box made by an English miniaturist , Tony.
You can follow the story of the box , its birth and mishaps , on his blog.

§ Non posso smettere di toccarla e di ammirarla e ho già "costretto" la mia famiglia a vederla.
Inutile dire che tutti sono rimasti a bocca aperta.

§ I cannot stop touching and admiring it and I "compelled" my family to see it.
Needless to say that everybody is in awe.

§ E' tutto perfetto, dalla scatola ad ogni singolo oggetto , minuziosamente riprodotto in avorio e ottone.
La scatola dei bottoni ha un prezioso coperchio di lapislazzuli e minuscoli bottoni all'interno.
Davvero un pezzo unico, da amare e tramandare ai nipoti.
Il pezzo più "grande" è un ditale Medievale e fa parte del corredo da cucito.

§ Everything is perfect , the box to every single object , cleverly reproduce in ivory and brass.
The buttons box has a precious lid made of laps lazuli and tiny buttons inside.
Truly a unique piece , to be loved and hand down to grandchildren.
The "biggest" piece is a Medieval thimble and it is part of the sewing accessories.

THANK YOU TONY
