Carved in 2003 by Monique Baldwin, Sweet Nectar was produced as a Covet box figurine. The Sweet Nectar offered here is a prototype, made at Wimberley Mills in England.

Sweet Nectar (COLEHB) was issued as a limited edition of 2500 pieces worldwide, in the fall of 2003. It measures 3" x 3.3" x 3".
 

Sweet Nectar HK Secrets:
(Production Box)
Covets are whimsical yet functional figurine boxes, combining three dimensional carving and detailed etching. The exterior of "Sweet Nectar" features a hummingbird sipping at a bloom. The interior portrays a flower, partially etched and partially sculpted, with room enough to store special treasures.

For those collectors that covet their collection, this prototype of the Sweet Nectar Covet box is a must. This piece was made in pre-production as part of the decision making process to produce the final released version.

The coloring on this Sweet Nectar prototype is very similar to the production box figurine. There are no hallmarks on this piece. The major difference is in the trim that runs around the base of the box.
