Secrets:  “Perfect 10” was carved to commemorate the ten year anniversary of the Royal Watch Collector’s Club. Ten creatures circle the perimeter of this multi-compartment box figurine, and the top and middle lids rotate to create 100 different combinations. Master Carver Peter Calvesbert says, “Should you grow tired of one set up, simply choose another! My latest favourite is the turtle head with zebra body and flamingo legs.” Peter inscribed all of the ICE expo cities he visited, but he omitted Edison by accident – sorry New Jersey! The interior depict mice. Peter says that during the carving of this piece, he would be woken at night by the sound of scurrying feet under the floorboards and wondered what kept mice awake at night. One mouse is trying to read but is being driven nuts by the mouse downstairs playing electric guitar. The “Lorax” by Dr. Seuss is one of Peter and his son Sam’s favorite books. The newspaper headline refers to Peter’s love of baseball and the time when HK collector Alan Kimenker took him to Fenway Park to watch his beloved Boston Red Sox humiliated by the Yankees. 2004 must have been a happy year for Alan!
