This is a Crawford style box made of walnut burl veneer, this is one of the best walnut burls I have been able to purchase in a while, it is very tight burl pattern so I let the wood show on most of the interior only lining the bottom. The bottom and tray are lined with burgundy velvet. On the interior of the lid is my entry into marquetry, I have wanted to try marquetry and this was an opprotunity to try it. It took three tries to get a swan but I’m still not real good at it. The finish is shellac.
