These adorable miniature trinket boxes are made of bone china and feature designs drawn by artist Bev Milward. They come in a range of shapes and designs, with ship's biscuits and weevils decorating the lids and insides of the boxes.

Bev visited the ship and museums to do research for her designs, and was inspired by the wide range of food eaten by passengers on board ship:

'Whilst the passengers in First Class dined on Fricasee of Fowl and Plum Pudding, those in third class were fuelled by ship's biscuits. It was customary to give them a tap to dislodge the weevils that might lurk inside.'
