Midas Touch is a small Treasure Jest box figurine which features a beautifully detailed fish swimming among aquatic grasses. Given the name, I assume this is a Gold Fish. Master Carver Peter Calvesbert carved the original mold for this piece in 2000 for Harmony Kingdom of England. After reproducing the model in hand painted boxes made from crushed marble and resin, the pieces were issued for sale on 3/15/2001 in an edition size of 5405. Midas Touch was retired on 10/1/2008.
This box figurine is in excellent condition. The model number is TJFI3. It measures 2.5 x 1.25 x 2.5 inches. Midas Touch has no inner carving. Hallmarks include Pc for Peter Calvesbert, a double diamond, the HBC treble clef logo, and the copyright symbol. Peter's mouse is peeking out of the aquatic grasses near the tail fin of the fish. Two baby names (Jodie and Sam) being considered by Peter and his wife are written on the backside of two of the fins. The piece comes with its original green box (with the original price sticker on the side), a place card, and the Harmony Kingdom pamphlet.
Midas Touch is found in The Harmony Kingdom Reference Guide by Leanna Barron on p. 100.
