A posy of blue Forget-Me-Nots drawn together with a bow decorates this simple waste paper basket in a decoupage effect. This piece is so pretty there's no need to hide it away - it can sit alongside white vintage and antique furniture in a shabby chic or French country cottage interior scheme.

Matching tissue box covers are available in the Forget-Me-Not design.

Height : 29.5 cm 

Finish & Base Material: Decoupage on Organic light weight melamine.




Secrets of Florentine gilding - Our Florentine range of bins, tissues & trays are made in Florence, Italy, and their style is inspired by this great city. We work directly with a tiny fourth-generation family business. They use the same traditional technique of gold-leaf gilding that decorated the opulent palaces of Renaissance Florence.

Applying gold leaf requires incredible skill and time. The leaf itself is so fragile that it cannot be handled with bare hands. Learning to apply it can take many years, but the results are beautiful, transforming objects into glowing works of art.

They use a unique style which is the combination of gold leaf painting with fine hand decorated Italian paper in designs which reflect opulence and glamour of the period. The effect is brings a softness to the collection but with all the glamour.

All wood used is sustainably sourced.
