This Harmony Kingdom box figurine is called "Joie De Vivre" and features a golden-winged angel with a group of rabbits at her feet; they are enjoying life. This is the third version of this figure, and the head is facing up. The first and second versions of this angel had the head turned downward towards the rabbits. Carved by master carver, David Lawrence, "Joie De Vivre" is part of the original Angelique Series.
Inside of the box is a butterfly. The various hallmarks are found along the base of the angel's neck. This cute angel was released in 1996 and was available for only two years before it was retired. The sculpture and details on this graceful box figurine are remarkable!
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 "Joie De Vivre" is in perfect condition, from the inventory of a closed store, and it will come in the original Harmony Kingdom Angelique blue box with certificate & information card. This popular collectible is referenced in "The Harmony Kingdom Reference Guide" by Leanna Barron (2002), page 120.
