Another version of our best-selling engraved carving keepsake box in whisky wax finish, so loved by our customers. Big enough for lots of memories, this personalised box has a simple, old-fashioned charm. It is perfect as a gift from a mother’s young children to her on Mother’s Day or her birthday.

We shape and finish these boxes by hand in our workshops on the Herts/ Bucks border.


The curly lozenge with the word “Keepsakes” inside are part of the design. We do not change this. We have many other keepsake box designs to choose from, if this doesn’t match your needs.

“Mummy’s”  is the default engraved carving for the line above the central Keepsakes lozenge. You can specify an alternative term like “Mum’s”, “Mam’s” or “Mother’s”  or write a completely different top line, if you prefer. It can be up to 20 characters long, including spaces and any punctuation.

You choose the engraved text under the Keepsakes lozenge. Customer’s usually enter a personal dedication that includes children’s names, such as “Love Olivia & George”. This line can be up to 20 characters long; you may wish to use the ‘&’ character to save letters.

Your text can include A-Z, 0-9 and simple punctuation. Please note we cannot do # () * emoticons, graphics or special symbols.


The box is made from Scandinavian birch faced ply with a hinged lid and brass clasp.

External dimensions: 34.5cm x 20cm x 10cm

The box is skilfully decorated by hand and will have imperfections in the wood that create that well worn look. The wood grain will also differ from box to box and the uptake of the coloured wax may vary. In short, every box is unique!

The carved lettering is shown “blackened” with ink in the photographs. This process is done by hand after the engraved carving is finished. Alternatively, you can specify lettering whitened with acrylic paint. You can see examples of this effect on other keepsake boxes in our range.  Both processes make your personalisation really stand out.
