In China, peacocks symbolize beauty and dignity. Until the early 20th century, peacock feathers were given as awards for service or generosity—the more “eyes” on the feather, the more significant the award. This petite peacock pillbox is made using centuries-old cloisonné techniques, with hand-applied Swarovski crystals.


Handmade in China. 3"W x 2"L x 2 1/4"H.


To create the decorative surface of cloisonné, thin fillets of flattened wire are bent to form a pattern. The spaces between the wires, called cloisons or cells, are then filled with powdered enamel. The exact origins are unknown, but cloisonné techniques most likely evolved out of related mosaic, stained glass, and jewelry-making practices. Although exceptional pieces of cloisonné exist from Byzantine times, modern craftsmen in China and Japan have further refined the art of mixing the enamel pigments to achieve a spectrum of subtle colors.

                          This small peacock box is far more than I expected. It's simply exquisite. Had to buy more for friends who love birds. Perfectly happy with this purchase.

                          It's a very beautiful little box with lots of detail. While small, it's certainly very noticeable due to the beauty of the detail. However, you can't put much more than a couple of rings or a pair of small earring in it. Still, I like it.
