Triangle box, I did not know what else to call it, it’s bandings and motifs are made up of triangles. This is a Crawford style box, veneered in makore, it’s very easy veneer to work with I say that because I am new to many veneers and each new one is an adventure, this makore is easy to cut and sand, when finished it is a rich undulating brown color. The interior motif was done before the lid was curved and the outside after it was curved. This is the first time I have used a lock on my boxes, I always felt a lock was superfluous, a scewdriver would snap one of these locks and if someone wanted to steal the jewels they could carry the box away, it ranked up there with the portable safe, if it’s portable it’s not very safe is it, however everyone likes a lock on a box and they look really neat, so I defer to popular desires. Quadrant hinges and burgundy velvet interior, finish is shellac. Size W12” x D9” x H7”.
