Description

We are introduced to Professor Snape’s personal potions store in the Goblet of Fire. We see it in the film when Snape accuses Harry of stealing gillyweed and produces Veritaserum as a threat to get the truth. The book is slightly different, as we find out Dobby stole the gillyweed!

With 115 filled glass bottles, 6 cauldrons and a myriad of other miniature vessels lining the shelves, this book nook contains everything a potions master could need. But who do the tiny footprints belong to?

Each bottle has been individually filled with differing contents and labelled with unique hand-written and stained paper labels. All of the bottles have been carefully arranged and fixed into place on the shelves to boast a vast array and a few little gaps for more. No two bottles are the same, with different fillings, shapes, sizes and closures.

The tiny cauldrons have been made from scratch from glass components. 

The ceiling is lit with warm white LED fairy lights to give the book nook a warm glow. The  on/off switch and battery pack is wired onto the back of the book nook. It sits neatly into a custom built holder for easy removal when the batteries need to be changed. The battery pack takes 2x CR2032 button cells.

The sides of the book nook are adorned with the pages from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire where Snape accuses Harry of stealing gillyweed and boomslang skin. These pages have been recycled from a damaged book. The top and back of the book nook are painted black.

This book nook has taken almost 30 hours to build, so has been a labour of love to gain this level of detail. A great talking piece and a place to discover a different detail each time you look at it. Not suitable for vegans due to some contents being derived from animals (vintage fur and bones). This item is not suitable for children and is recommended for adult collectors only due to the glass components. Must be handled with care.

This book nook incorporates natural, pre-loved and recycled materials diverted from landfill. This includes, but is not limited to: Vintage watch vials, vintage watch parts, silica gel, foam, scrap fabric, jute string, scrap paper, glass domes, glass marbles, book pages, herbs, spices (including MUSTARD), ALMOND, gemstones, vintage fur, feathers, sea urchins, coral, snake bones (professionally prepared), reindeer moss and sand.

Measures 19.5cm by 13.5cm by 8cm.

Shipping Policy

--- Shipping ---
All items are shipped as soon as possible, but all listings will note their own dispatch time. This is usually next day dispatch, but some orders will take longer to pack and dispatch, such as custom or made-to-order designs. I am able to ship 6 days a week in most cases, excluding Sundays and bank holidays when it is not possible to send mail.
I am based in North Wales in the UK, and use Royal Mail to send out all packages.
All items can be shipped anywhere around the world, but please note that if you live in Australia and purchase a vial necklace containing soil or plants (or other items that are screened by border control) that you will be responsible for any fees incurred.

--- Standard shipping fees ---
Most listings will have standard shipping fees, however, listings will note if the item has priority or tracked shipping. If you wish to upgrade your shipping to a priority service, please let me know so that I can amend the shipping charges. This can be done before sale on etsy or after sale by sending an additional paypal invoice for a shipping upgrade.
Etsy has recently changed their policies to also allow shipping upgrades as a separate listing, so this can be done for you to add tracked shipping to your order.

--- Shipping address ---
If you would like an item to be shipped to an address other than your own, please ensure this address is the one added to your etsy order. If this differs to your paypal address, I will contact you to confirm the address you would like it sent to. Please note this address must match your paypal address, as otherwise, seller protection is not valid, and your item will not be sent and your item can either be re-ordered or refunded.

--- Sending gifts to their recipient ---
All items are available to ship straight to a gift recipient, so if you wish to use this service, please ask for the receipt/invoice can be left out of the package.

--- Shipping and packaging prices ---
Shipping costs incorporate the cost to send the item as well as the packaging. All items come with a padded giftbox which is wrapped in tissue paper and sent inside a padded envelope. This packaging method has not failed me yet!

Refund Policy

--- Late and lost items ---

If you receive your item and it is in bad condition, or if your item does not arrive, please contact me for details, as a replacement can usually be sent out.
Shipping usually takes 1-3 days in the UK and 10-15 days to get to the US or Australia. If your item has not reached you within 10 days in the UK (or 25 days if you have bought internationally), send me a message and a replacement item will be sent right out. If this is not possible, or if you would rather have a refund (for example if it was required for a certain date and did not arrive by that date) an immediate refund will be issued.

All attempts are made so that your item arrives safe and in one piece. If your item does not arrive in one piece, please let me know. If you can, please include a photo of the damage so that I can improve my service, and so that a complaint can be lodged with the appropriate mail handling services.

Please note items should be returned in their original gift box and without signs of wear. All packages will have a return address on the envelope which can be used, but be aware that you will be responsible for the return shipping fees using a shipping service comparable to the service used to send the item to you.
