Description
Capturing a classic illustration from Lewis Carroll's 'Alice in Wonderland' by Sir John Tenniel, 1865, this grinning hand-enamelled Cheshire Cat trinket box lifts to reveal a surprise costume pendant within. It has been suggested that the appearance of the iconic character created by Carroll was inspired by a 16th century grinning cat found on the west face of St. Wilfrid's Church tower in Grappenhall, a village near to the author's birthplace in Daresbury, Cheshire. Carroll also wrote of spotting a "Cheshire cat with a gigantic smile at Brimstage carved into the wall" at Brimstage Hall, Wirral, another possible source for the famous literary cat.
