A pair of original “Straw” bee-hives hand made in the traditional medieval domed shape using coiled 'lippi' work.


The ancient skill of 'lippi work', coiling straw to create a 'Bee-Skep' (traditional Bee-hive) dates back to Medieval times. The 'skep's were used to catch swarms and house bees.


These 'Skeps' can be either ornamental or practical. With or without holes for bees to travel in and out of but more likely repurposed as garden planters.


Perfect for Beekeepers, Gardner's and lovers of nature alike. Strong and long lasting both inside or outdoors.


Size shown is Approx 17 inches x 17 inches (43 cm x 43 cm) and 12 x 12 inches.
