This box was commissioned by a co-worker who collects paraphernalia from the Disney animation Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.
The box is an interpretation of the box that the Evil Queen gives to the hunter. She tells him to go into the woods, kill Snow White, and put her heart inside the box and bring it back to her so she knows Snow White is dead.
Its made of Padauk, with a book-matched Amboyna burl top that looks like a human heart. My wife helped me paint the panels. The heart is carved from mahogany and gilded with 24 carat gold leaf. I shaped the dagger out of solid brass. The hinges and feet are also premium solid brass hardware. It is lined with suede. The plaque reads “Magic Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?”
