Exotic Packaging: Applewoods of Devon Ltd Brambly Hedge Fine Soap Primrose
I can't help feeling that someone bought this primrose soap simply because the box was so pretty. And Brambly Hedge was an utterly charming series of (I think) four books, one for each season. Subsequently Brambly Hedge went on to take over the world of novelty plates and probably calendars and stuff. And, as you see, soap.
And here's another wonderful image from the talented Jill Barklem who created Brambly Hedge. I just love all the details. No wonder I remember the soap box, but not the soap itself!
