The sculpture and details on this 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 "La Gardienne" is in perfect condition, from the inventory of a closed store, and it will come in the original Harmony Kingdom Angelique navy box with certificate & information card. This popular collectible is referenced in "The Harmony Kingdom Reference Guide" by Leanna Barron (2002), page 149.
