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?”

Great job Blake. I never met a box I didn’t like but, I can’t say I like the purpose for each of them. lol

How about a picture of the top and inside?

Best,
Jim

Blake a beautiful box.

The top bookmatching was a great idea.

Fantastic box Blake, love the details with the carved heart and brass sword. This is really, really nice !

The bookmatched top and joinery are “top notch”........

Where did you get those neat little brass feet for the box? I like ‘em….....
