Palace Garden -
Sold - Price $3500
case was made for a German collector who is into orchids. Every
orchid is unique and faithfully hand painted. The reason that
this case is called the Palace Garden is because it was designed to
flow like taking a walk through a castle garden in Germany. As
you move around the case you will see that no pattern repeats itself
and each section is unique. Aside from the orchids and the wild
roses there are two special flowers on this case.
One is the lotus which was taken directly from a tattoo on the owner's
neck. The lotus and this particular tattoo have a lot of meaning
for the owner so we reproduced it on the case for him. The second
special flower is the peony which is as close to the national flower of
China as it gets. I chose the peony because this case was made in
China in my workshop by my Chinese staff and it represents 5000 years
of Chinese artists. Zhen Hai Lee did all the tooling and painting
on this case and I did all of the design.
Take a look at all the details. This is the most ornate case we have done yet.
Thank you for visiting our Palace Garden, enjoy the stroll.
