- +

Handcrafted in Italy, from solid pewter, this gorgeous box is a reassuringly weighty little keepsake.

The poignant message 'SEIZE THE DAY', written in Latin, is inscribed on the lid, which an aphorism taken from a poem written in the Odes in 23BC by the Latin poet Horace. The ode refers to the future being unforeseen and that we should not leave to chance future happenings, but rather we should do all we can today to make our future better.

The box would make an ideal corporate gift, reminding those in an organisation to seize the day, likewise the perfect graduation or retirement gift. In fact, the versatile box is an encouraging keepsake for all of us, male or female, and perfect for the dressing table, coffee table or office, and could be used to store jewellery, cufflinks or other treasured possessions. 

It is complemented by a smaller version.
