Carved by Harmony Kingdom artist, Peter Calvesbert, this box figurine is part of the Large Treasure Jest Series. Released in 1990, this very early Treasure Jest is retired.
"Quiet Waters" features a tufted duck, with very elaborately carved feathers. Since this is a very early piece by Peter, it does not incorporate the hidden mouse or any Harmony Kingdom hallmarks.
This box is considered a prototype or first edition as there is no inside carving and no inscriptions. This is one of the more rare and hard to find items by Peter Calvesbert.
Harmony Kingdom boxes are hand crafted, using marble resin, from original carvings. Then each is hand painted and tinted for a one-of-a-kind figurine. The boxes are hand painted by citizens of the rural English countryside of the South Cotswolds. There are differences in colorations on each piece.
This Treasure Jest is in perfect condition, from the inventory of a closed store, and it will come in the original Harmony Kingdom green canister box with place card. This popular collectible is referenced in "The Harmony Kingdom Reference Guide" by Leanna Barron (2002), page 89.
