Here is a Harmony Kingdom collector club kit for 1998, which includes a Treasure Jest box figurine and a pin. The box figurine is called "Mutton Chops" and is sculpted by Peter Calvesbert, one of the master carvers at Harmony Kingdom. There is also a "Three Cats" pin, along with color brochures and other information about Harmony Kingdom. The Royal Watch Collector's Club no longer exists, so you are not able to join the club with this kit.
The Treasure Jest, "Mutton Chops", was made in England exclusively for the Royal Watch club. Based on the Aesop fable of a wolf in sheep's clothing, the box figurine features two placid sheep and a hungry wolf in sheep's clothing. Inside the box are two lamb chops. Peter's famous mouse is tucked in the lamb's wool on the wolf's back. Hallmarks include the copyright, diamond, HBC logo, edition number, and PC. As shown in the picture, this box is a #1, for first edition.
The "Three Cats" Pin was made exclusively for the Club Kit by Peter Calvesbert. The expressions on the cats' faces are priceless! On the bottom of both the Treasure Jest box and the back of the pin are labels identifying each piece as having been made in England.
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.
The collectors club kit comes packaged in the box as shown, and all items are intact. This retired club kit is in perfect condition; it has never been displayed, and is from the inventory of a closed store. The green box has some faded areas from storage, but everything inside is in perfect condition, including all of the paperwork and small brochures.
It is difficult to find this kit all together, in new condition, as it was retired from production in 1998.
