Keep your Christmas treasures in the castle from ‘Downton Abbey’
A masterpiece of craftmanship
Is there a more appropriate place in which to keep your jewellery or watch collection than a miniature replica of a venerable English manor house? David Linley has previously built many interesting pieces, and this architectural box is no different – a masterpiece of craftsmanship. The jewellery box consists of 10,944 individual parts, made from the finest maple wood and laser-engraved to create the perfect replica of Highclere Castle. Inside, you’ll find three main drawers and a secret compartment. It’s limited to five copies, each costing £65,000. Lovers of architecture should also like Linley’s London Royal Opera House Keepsake Box, as well as the Monticello Humidor based on the former residence of President Thomas Jefferson.
