BEST GIFTS FOR A PROSPEROUS CHINESE NEW YEAR

Last minuate shopping! In celebration of the Year of the Ram in the Chinese Zodiac calendar, Town House, the city’s renowned leading purveyors of luxury gifts and lifestyle accessories, is presenting a series of stylish gifts inspired by the celebrated ram.

Known to be artistic and lovers of beauty and aesthetic pleasures, those born in the lunar year of the Ram also exhibit virtues of compassion, generosity and are notorious for being tolerant under intense pressure while remaining stable, hence touted as the best team players in the work environment. In tribute to these characteristics, Town House offers the perfect gift for those born in the Year of the Ram, and for loved ones and business partners to usher in good fortune at this auspicious time!

Town House commissioned Duccio di Segna to produce the next series of crystal ram figurines, exclusive to only Town House Landmark Prince’s store. The exquisite crystal pieces are shaped using techniques from 14th century Tuscany, most notably the town Colle Val d’Elsa. The local tradition has born and bred generations of glass blowers and engravers, with evolving techniques perfecting the traditional spirit. With technical superiority of using the purest 24% lead crystal treated at 1220° C, and 24-carat pure gold, the creator’s beauty lies at the intersection of art and science. The 19cm Ram Bust retails at HK$4,500.

For those whisky aficionados in our group of friends or business associates, the perfect coveted gift this season is the Whisky Decanter set that comes with two tumbler glasses. Using the perfect blend of aesthetics and functionality, the Bohemia crystal and cut pattern is an opulent, highly refractive crystal set worthy of the finest tipple. With its Czech roots born in the Renaissance period, an era filled with unrestrained hedonism, the whisky decanter gift set comes emblazoned with an artistic interpretation of the Chinese character of the auspicious Ram and will be available in February 2015 for HK$1,080.
