The crowns on the left were my first successful giftware design. They were produced by Faroy, a company in Houston, Texas. I wanted to design Christmas decorations that people would collect and cherish.
I was proud of these because they sold as a set and were Christmas tree ornaments. This is a scan from a 1990 Neiman Marcus catalog that featured them.
The crowns below were Limoges boxes I designed, they were supposed to be famous crowns of great kingdoms. I liked the fact they were produced as a collectible group of three and I thought of them as Christmas decorations, as the crowns of the "Three Kings".
