This little turned boxwood dish appears to have been made to keep track of tiny parts.

It was probably kept on a jeweler's workbench.

The inner surface of this rim is turned in a gentle curve.

A maker's or owner's initials are written in ink on the underside.

Beautiful color; exceptionally tactile
