Carved by Harmony Kingdom artist, Peter Calvesbert, this Treasure Jest is called "Orange Crush", and features a tiger cub scratching his ear. This box figurine is from the Mini Treasure Jests Series that includes figures a bit smaller than the average.
Released in 2000, "Orange Crush" was retired within a few years. There is no inner carving, and the hallmarks are found on the base. Peter's signature mouse appears as a claw on the left rear paw.
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 box with brochure. This popular collectible is referenced in "The Harmony Kingdom Reference Guide" by Leanna Barron (2002).
This tiger cub is so cute, and his face has such personality.
SIZE: 2.5 inches high
