These Display Pyramids come in two sizes that look great as a duo on the mantlepiece or a styled shelf. They are hand-made from brass and glass and have a reflective mirrored base to highlight the contents inside.

This Brass Box Candle Holder has a glass compartment to fill with finds. In summer, try adding shells or sea glass from the beach, or at Christmas a festive centrepiece could be created with mini baubles or seasonal foliage.
