This adorable Treasure Jest box figurine called Fuss Pot depicts a Shar-pei dog, famous for their wrinkled skin, with a tub of Ripe Ash Moisturiser (sic). The box figurine was carved by Peter Calvesbert for Harmony Kingdom of England in 1999, then replicated in crushed marble and resin, and hand colored by cottage workers in England. It was released on 1/1/2000 in an edition size of 10234, and retired on 2/6/2002.
This particular box has hallmarks which include a ©, Pc for Peter's initials, the HBC logo (treble clef), a half moon, and infinity symbol. The interior of the box has a carving of liquorice (sic), which will help the Shar-pei keep his tongue black - a must to win a dog show, and a mention of an comic actor, Sid James, who had a famously wrinkled face. The piece measures 2.28 x 1.73 x 2.4 inches. It is in excellent condition. The model identification in TJHO4.
This Treasure Jest comes in a presentation box with a Harmony Kingdom pamphlet and place card. The box still has the original price sticker and identification stickers on the side.
Fuss Pot can be found on page 55 in The Harmony Kingdom Reference Guide by Leanna Barron.
