Artisan Vases Perfect For Displaying Flowers

vases

A perfect gift alongside a bouquet of flowers, these vases from Caravane make a uniquely rustic addition to any room or dinner table if using as a carafe. 

After being thrown on a pottery wheel, it is fired in a kiln, before being immersed in engobe, which creates the slight streaks that only reveal themselves on closer inspection. It is then delicately painted by hand with its signature motif, before being re-fired in the kiln one last time to harden and waterproof the piece and reveal its final colours, which vary from one piece to the next.

The BARRO vase is available in two colours and sizes: the small Charcoal Barro holds 0.75 L, while the large Terracotta holds 1.5 L. Paired together or with other pieces in the collection, the BARRO is emblematic of the savoir-faire of the Portuguese city of Evora.

Purchase here for £45.

Jewels With A Rich History

Humphrey Butler Earrings

Gift your mum something extra special this Mother’s Day with Humphrey Butler luxury antique jewellery. With timeless diamond detail and unique designs, these fine pieces are set to become family heirlooms. 

Based in Pall Mall, Humphrey Butler’s showroom is a veritable treasure trove of rare and unusual delights. Clients can choose from a stunning array of both important estate jewellery as well as more contemporary luxury pieces dating from the 18th Century to the present day.  

Part of the excitement and pleasure of buying antique jewellery is the provenance, with the purchaser becoming part of that history and continued story. Antique jewellery is also a sustainable choice, without contributing to the mass production process so detrimental to the planet. 

We particularly love their pair of art deco ruby and diamond earclips in a geometric fan design, set throughout with old mine-cut diamonds enhanced by bands of calibré-cut rubies, forming a double clip brooch. 

These earrings are a spectacular investment and can be purchased for £16,500 here.

Celebrating Female Empowerment This Mother's Day

The Tenant of Wildfell Hall Anne Brontë
Images by The Folio Society

Frank, radical and unashamedly feminist, Anne Brontë’s ground-breaking masterpiece The Tenant of Wildfell Hall sent shockwaves through Victorian England and remains strikingly modern today. Now this beautiful new illustrated edition of Brontë’s masterful novel has been published by The Folio Society to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the author’s birth. 

The story follows the mysterious and beautiful Helen Graham, who has recently moved into Wildfell Hall. Curious speculation turns into nasty rumours as the town deliberates on who she is, where she has come from, and what has happened to her husband… 

Beautifully bound, and full of captivating illustrations by Valentina Catto, this edition’s binding and artwork blends classic artistic techniques with a contemporary edge, perfectly marrying itself to Brontë’s radical voice. 

Published in series with her sister’s most accomplished novels, Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights, this new edition recognises Anne’s literary achievements as equal to those of her sisters, and completes the trio of their most celebrated works.

Here’s how Tile works – ring it when you’ve misplaced something, if it’s close by, and if you fear you’ve left your belonging further away, check where your item was last seen on a map. This allows you to tap into Tile’s community, the world’s largest lost-and-found network, which will anonymously help find the lost or stolen item almost anywhere in the world. You can even use Tile in reverse to call your phone – even when it’s on silent. 

All Tile Bluetooth trackers are available at Tile.com and major retailers; including Amazon, John Lewis, Curry’s and Argos. Full product details can be found below. 

Whatever you decide to get your Mum this Mother’s Day, it will most importantly be gifted with love. There’s an array of items out there from luxury jewels to beautiful bouquets, all of which your Mother will appreciate.
