A wandering minstrel I ~
A thing of shreds and patches
of ballads, songs and snatches
and dreamy lullaby.
For the theater lover or Renaissance Bard in your life, this is one of Crummles finest creations: The Wandering Minstrel. The enamel is beautifully designed to show a brightly costumed bard framed by Corinthian columns and long red drapes. Hand painted fleur de lis in genuine 22k gold embellish the outside edge of the image.
This hand painted enamel box, display box and certificate are all in excellent condition. The enamel on the lid and base is in pristine condition, inside and out. The copper findings, in particular the hinge, are in like new condition. The box measures approximately 2.25 inches in diameter. This is a limited edition piece, numbered 111 of 250. As shown, the certificate of authenticity and original display box are included.
Please take your time with the photos and consider them part of the description.

Sales from the WhyteWing website benefit The Trevor Project, but if you are more comfortable making your purchase on a platform like Etsy, this minstrel box is listed in my shop there as well.
