    Two divisive elements comprise this Limited Edition that parallel Alfred Nobel’s life: Destruction and Peace. Inspired by his invention of dynamite, this one-of-a-kind collection features an exploding stick of dynamite on the barrel, coupled with a burning fuse while the years 1833 and 1896 rest at its base. The bottom of the barrel emulates a blasting cap (another of Nobel’s inventions) engraved – in Swedish – with the words Varning (Warning) Tändhattar (Blasting Caps) and Fara (Danger). Four levels of Guilloche engraving are employed on the barrel, depicting an explosive blast. Four colors of Hard Enamel are then kiln-fired to the surface of the barrel without separation, merging outward from White to Yellow to Orange to Red. By sharp contrast, the Nobel cap features a simple repeating pattern of a White Dove: the international symbol for peace. Engraved above is the name of Alfred Bernhard Nobel. Adorning the top of the crown are the unmistakable three crowns of Sweden, most recognized from the top of Stadshuset (City Hall) in Stockholm where each year on December 10th prize winners enjoy dinner and an evening with the King and Queen of Sweden.
