Part of a beautiful collection purchased from a former collector who never displayed her collection, this box has been carefully checked and is in perfect condition with the original box.  The outer green box shows some slight age and storage wear. ~ Jules

S e c r e t s:
Peter loves to watch TV wildlife documentaries, and in this piece, he turns the table by giving the zebra the chance to dominate its predator. Here the zebra sits firmly upon a lioness that has Swiss Army knife claws, a bandage from a previous wound, and a pierced tongue. Under the front leg of the zebra, the mouse makes a full appearance, baring paws, stomach, bottom and tail as he mirrors the zebra’s courage. Around the base of the lid is the Latin inscription, 'Mites possidebunt terram' meaning 'The meek shall inherit the earth.' There is no inner carving except for HBC logo. Hallmarks include ©, heart, HBC logo, ed.#, and Pc.
