Since launching in 2012, Maison Balzac has greatly expanded, adding to the range to become a house of bespoke and ceremonious objects for everyday life.
Inspired by a childhood on the Mediterranean, this ceramic box houses long scented matches and a scratcher. Each of the 150 shellfish is produced by hand by the Manufacture de Digoin in France and is delicately positioned in its own ink night blue box featuring a hand drawing.
The Manufacture de Digoin has been making exceptional pieces since 1875 and was recently brought to a new life by Corinne Jourdain. Every object draws inspiration form their archives which include an outstanding bestiaire of ducks, deer, wild pigs and fishes. Le lobster feels right at home amongst their creations.
