The grease box story
another Danish greasebox

Ok, I know, it’s a obsession, these little boxes…
But here yet another Danish grease box, not really a greasebox I think, since this one has a paper inside.
It is my friend Flemmings, he just passed to show me since he knows my passion for these little boxes.
So in fact I guess it could have been a needle box, this just makes it even more interesting in my world.
Anyway beautiful it is.



Closed, notice the inlay.
(This was added by Flemming).


Fist turn.


Open.


I find the slim lines elegant and a wonderful shape to touch.


Best thoughts, may the grease be with you,

I can almost feel the love that was added to this little box as it was being made.

Awesome latching mechanism, too!

Looks like a COOL functioning lil box…

A short video showing it opening, closing, etc. would help a lot… if you can…

Thank you.

OK Mads. Now I get the concept of the two lids. Very nice locking mechanism. What a great concept.

I will have to put my hand into to this.

Thanks.
