If you're needing something to showcase your pieces and keep everything all together, this is a great solution. Although it looks ceramic in the pictures, in the light of day it is plastic and on one of the sides the joins and construction of the tree are exposed. The plastic is stiff and will hold any 50cent-like medallions that you might have with ease. The base is spacious, creating a firm base as well as a good sized bits-and-bobs holder. It looks great on a chest of draws or bedside table and would be a nice addition to anyone's jewellery collection.
