The UK based Harmony Kingdom began making intricate little boxes in the early 1990's. They have quickly become highly collectible. The boxes are intricate carvings by master artists made of crushed marble and resin to resemble antique ivory, then handpainted by cottage craftsmen. They later contracted for special craftsman in China to produce some lines with artists from the Martin Perry Studio. (Martin Perry was one of the original creators of Harmony Kingdom.) One such line was Lord Byron's Harmony Garden which follows the ladybug Lord Byron on his journey through life among the various flowers.

Harmony Kingdom has this to say about this box figurine: "Lord Byron travels to Spain's Orange Arena where he courageously challenges and stunningly defeats Mighty Toro the beetle. Hallmarks include ©, star, HBC logo, ed.#, M, and eye."

Orange was carved by Master Artist Monique Baldwin in 1998, then released on 1/1/99 in an edition of 11280 boxes. It was retired on 10/15/2004. The dimensions of the piece are 3.54 x 3.07 x 2.76 inches. The model number is HG3OR. The box is referenced in the 9th edition Price Guide to Contemporary Collectibles and Limited editions by Mary L. Sieber. This piece has also been repaired in two places: a slight chip on a leaf, and Lord Byron re-glued to the base. There are also several tiny chips on a couple of leaves. Please see enlarged photos. Comes with it's original outer box but no literature is available with this piece. Price is reduced due to flaws. Still a beautiful, neat little box.
