Made of highly figured burl, this little box is packed with detail. Each of the visible surfaces is inlaid with black pitch in a narrow groove. The hinged lid, which has an interesting, flared handle at its front, is framed by six of these lines, two horizontal and four vertical. A similar line encircles the entire box. There is a small diamond-shaped piece inlaid into the center of the lid that appears to be made of a darker hardwood. The interior is veneered with a darker, highly patterned wood. This beautiful little box has deep, rich colors and a smooth, tactile surface.

English, 19th century

Dimensions: 2 ¼” X 1 ¼”; Height: ⅝
