These traditional style jewelry boxes have one with marquetry and one without. Both boxes are made with walnut burl veneer with bird’s eye maple for the trim. The top marquetry is done in purpleheart roses with an ebony and myrtle burl scroll with poplar leaves. The inside has dividers that you can either leave in or the option of taking them out depending on your needs.

The front door has marquetry of three rose stems and when you open it there are three hidden drawers for more storage. It also has two side doors with a single rose done in marquetry and when opened it has two rotating necklace carousels to display your necklaces.

Words fail me … they are fantastic. Is the box and marquetry of your own design?

Absolutely superb Dennis. The Birdseye Maple looks like marble, great effect.
I like them both but you know which one I like best.
The marquetry is, of course, excellent.

Wow, wow, wow. Dennis, hard to find the right words. These are marvelous. The light/dark contrast is not easy to pull off, but here it is superb. Such a complex box and such great work. I will admire these for some time to come! The curved side-door compartments are a special surprise. A tour-de-force. Wonderful pieces.

Great boxes. They look like fine pieces of furniture. The fit and finish looks perfect. I especially like the two columns.
