We were inspired by the classic poem "In me the tiger sniffs the rose", a masterpiece by the British poet Siegfried Sassoon. We then turned that spark of inspiration into the beautiful piece you see here.
The entire piece is cast in sterling silver. The tigers serious face is gazing out as if to survey his territory. The hand carved roses and vines are made from copper and brass and add a certain tenderness to the product. The two contrasting materials make the whole thing pop. A copy of the poem that inspired the piece is located on the other side on the item in enamel.
Depicting the tigers hair patterns and the line work of the roses were the hardest part of this items design and production. But our skilled artisans did an amazing job adding all those fine details to bring you the unique and gorgeous item you see before you!
