2020 Easter Egg Box
Inspired by the decorative ceiling of the Chapel Royal, St. James's Palace, this 2020 edition of the Halcyon Days Easter Egg is gilded in gold, highlighting the details of the spectacular ceiling. Hans Holbein was commissioned by Henry VIII to decorate and complete the chapel. The ambulatory vault in the S. Costanza Church in Rome inspired the details of ceiling. The illustrative painting attributed to Italian craftsmen commemorates the marriage of Henry VIII to Anne of Cleves.
