Good Things Come in Small Packages

Ad in MARY ENGELBREIT'S HOME COMPANION, November 1997

The ad says:

"Good things come in small packages ~
always have, always will."

Oh, indeed! These little enamel boxes recapture the 18th century craft of enameling. In Georgian days it was the fashion to give these little boxes as a token of friendship or to celebrate an event.



Decorated with the designs of Mary Engelbreit and produced by Alastor Enamels of England, these exquisite little boxes would please any ME fan. So you can imagine my delight when I opened this presentation box to discover . . .



This little jewel ~ a gift from a very thoughtful student.
