“Darling Ayari and Nick, thank you so much for the absolutely beautiful and bloomin’ clever box. Made by Ray Silvester himself! What a talent he has. The box is such an intricate labour of love. Luckily Graham worked out how to get in to it…! I’ll be putting it on my desk for treasures, and to remind me of the both of you. Please tell Ray how much I love it and will cherish it. Thank you both so much for such a gorgeous gift!

“I have just given my father one of your wonderful HMS Victory cubes for his 70th birthday. Both he and I absolutely love it. It must be the best present I have ever given him! It’s beautiful mix of history and workmanship.
Thank you so much.”


“Ray, the boxes (for pets’ ashes) have arrived safely and they are just perfect. Thanks so much.
They will enable us to keep our old friends nearby whilst having something interesting and decorative to look at.”

“Thanks very much for sending the box which arrived yesterday – very pleased with it. Will remember you for the future should we need something like this again.”
Gill and Mike

“My daughter presented me with one of your boxes for my birthday and I can honestly say I have never had a gift I have appreciated more. I’m lost in admiration for the workmanship and the design.
Many, many thanks for such a beautiful piece of workmanship.”

“Thanks very much for the castle which was delivered safely today. It is absolutely lovely and I am very pleased with my choice!”

“I love the box – will have be sufficiently disciplined to make sure I give it to my sister rather than keeping it for myself!”

“Many thanks to you and Kathy for Caroline’s Bloomin’ Clever Box – it is beautiful and I am sure she is going to love it!
Also thanks for your swift responses and quick delivery time – fantastic customer service! Thanks again”

“I would like to thank you for making this box for me. Your service has been exemplary, the cost of the item including p & p was just right and the finished item is simple and beautiful. This bespoke, handcrafted gift is just so special. My dad will be delighted with it”


“Hope you had a great time at the Dome fair and no doubt won some new collectors. As you know we have bought many of your boxes and castles as gifts for family and friends. They ALL love them.”
Leona and Steve

“Ray, thank you so much for the box you made for my wife. It was a great success. She and the family loved it. They would like to club together to buy me one of your Natural Top boxes for Christmas.”

“Thank you for the box. You have been extremely kind and helpful with this and I know my sister will love the engraving on the bottom too which has been done beautifully.”
