Enigma Variations Collection: Miniature Antique Copper & Brass Kettle with a Vintage Butterfly under a Glass Display Dome
The ancient greeks believed that a new human soul was born every time an adult butterfly emerged from its cocoon.
A beautiful vintage specimen butterfly is placed on an exquisite antique copper kettle. These tiny kettles were often used by travelling salesmen to show samples of the different styles of kettles available.
This miniature world is presented in a new glass dome with a painted wooden base.
Dome Dimensions: height 18cm
We are passionate about nurturing the planet, our environment and all wildlife and therefore only endorse ethical and sustainable practices.
The insects we use are sourced from unwanted vintage collections.
Unexpected juxtapositions: where antique artefacts have a poetic dialogue with the natural.
Due to the fragility of the glass dome and its contents we have reluctantly decided not to offer a delivery service on this creation. Please purchase and arrange collection with the gallery. Thank you.
