Riccio Tooth Fairy Boxes


Riccio tooth fairy boxes are cast in bronze and sterling silver.
They began as thematic ideas which took the form of a miniature.
The original designs were first carved in wax.


The Tooth Fairy Story

Children have long been cherished for their purity, and playfulness.
Fairies are known to share those very same qualities.
As time passes, every child begins that inevitable change to adulthood.
They become more aware and have important thoughts.
They get bigger and bigger. As the smile grows, the tiny baby teeth become too small,
new bigger ones grow to replace them.
Faries on the other hand, never grow up!
They remain tiny and childlike for a long, long time.
Baby teeth are keepsake treasures to fairies.
A tooth fairy will wait up all night hoping that its favorite child will
leave a memento of times shared in dreamland.
In turn, the fairy leaves a gift that will be of use in the growing up world.
All in all, each in turn, the tradition of growing up and giving is carried on.
