Highclere Castle Jewellery Box

About

Over the years, British design company Linley has developed expertise in creating scaled versions of famous architectural buildings including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Royal Albert Hall and the Royal Opera House. In this instance, Highclere Castle, which has become internationally recognized in recent years due to the ITV television series ‘Downton Abbey’, has been interpreted as a jewelry box. Constructed in maple with burr maple, ripple maple and quilted maple details, the Highclere Castle architectural box is made up of 10,944 individual pieces of marquetry which have been meticulously selected and pieced together by one of Linley’s highly skilled craftsman. The decorative stonework round the roof is laser cut and etched in maple whilst the 72 square finials are turned on an ornamental lathe which ensures symmetry on each piece. Lined in faux suede, the jewelry box consists of three main drawers and, in Linley signature style, there is a secret drawer hidden within the box which demonstrates the excellence and precision of Linley design and craftsmanship. Highclere Castle, one of England’s most beautiful Victorian castles has been home to the Carnarvon family, since 1679. Remodeled and rebuilt between 1839-1842 by Sir Charles Barry, the castle is in the Jacob Ethan style and faced in Bath stone, reflecting the Victorian revival of English architecture of the late 16th and early 17th century. In addition to the primarily Jacob Ethan style, Sir Charles Barry added some motifs of an Italianate style such as the slim and refined towers and the strapwork designs on the external walls which are typical of Northern European Renaissance architecture. A marvelous feat of design and architecture, Highclere castle was a natural choice for a Linley architectural box. Linley’s architectural box is designed to be a treasured piece of art in its own right whilst celebrating architecture and history, and of course, providing a suitable vessel for keeping all your precious jewels safe.
