Horseshoe Leather Box
can be personalised
gift wrapping available
A smart leather handmade horseshoe leather box with a suede velvet lining and hinged lid that can be personalised to order.
A perfect present for men, including bridegrooms, ushers and pages, for their cufflinks, dress studs and collar stiffeners.
The Horseshoe leather box is handmade, using traditional techniques to work the leather which is then coloured and polished, making it wonderfully soft to the touch with that distinctive smell of real leather.
When embossed in either silver or gold the box becomes a unique present that will give a lifetime of pleasure to the recipient
Our luxurious horseshoe leather boxes are all hand-coloured and made exclusively for us in Forest Green.
Other shapes available are Heart, Oblong and Oval.
Horseshoe boxes are lined in suede velvet in matching colour, with luxurious cufflink or earring pads in the same material.
Up to six characters (excluding full stops) can be embossed on one line, in Times Roman 22-point (capital letters only). A second line can be added, typically for dates. Unless otherwise specifically requested, full stops will be added after each initial, including the last one.
Our luxury leather boxes are hand-made for us, using age-old traditional skills in our own contemporary colours and designs. The colours used are derived from dyes that are environmentally friendly, naturally occurring ingredients being used wherever possible.
As these colours can fade if exposed to strong sunlight over a lengthy period, we recommend that the boxes are kept out of bright light.
The carcases of the boxes are made from strong cardboard, the lids being padded with a layer of foam rubber, giving them a ‘plush’ feel. Oval and Heart-shaped lids are detached, whilst the lids of the Horseshoe and Oblong boxes are hinged. The lids of the Horseshoe boxes are secured by a popper.
All the boxes are lined with suede velvet, an acrylic material that gives their interiors a luxurious appearance.
We specialise in the art of gold and silver blocking (traditional embossing on leather, now an almost extinct skill) which involves setting brass type into a 'chase' that goes into a heavy hot foiling machine. The lid of a box is secured on a pro-forma shape, which in turn is fastened to the machine’s table. Exact positioning is essential to ensure that the imprint is central and square, before inserting the foil used to give the embossing the desired colour, and lowering the chase to make the impression.
This process calls for considerable skill and attention to detail, giving our boxes an expensive and exclusive appearance.
The boxes require no maintenance, other than an occasional wipe. To restore their natural lustre we recommend the use of a high quality matching coloured leather polish, followed by gentle buffing with a soft cloth. Treated in this way one of our boxes will give many years of pleasure to the owner, as well as serving as a stylish reminder of the generosity of the giver, and that special occasion.

Really nice leather box, slightly expensive maybe but couldn't find anything else that looked as good on the internet and the quality is impeccable. The inside of the horseshoe box is made for cufflinks as it has two little elastic holders but could carry other jewellery as well.
