Downton Abbey (England’s Highclere Castle) Jewelry Box

Missing the PBS show, Downton Abbey now that the series is over?  Longing to have a nice place to store all of your diamond, gold and other jewels?  Lord Grantham loves his house and you can too.  A team working for the Queen’s nephew, David Linley, has recreated a wooden miniature replica of Highclere Castle in 10,944 pieces of maple marquetry. Created in a limited edition of just five, the cabinet has 72 square finials are turned on an ornamental lathe which ensures symmetry on each piece. Can’t afford the  £65,000 (close to $100,000)  price?  I wrote previously about some Downton Abby / Highclere Castle souvenir replicas.  I also found a plastic castle that illuminates and nice porcelain ornament and more from PBS.  Also of note, the David Linley company creates Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello as a miniature architectural cigarhumidor.
