A double curved jewellery box veneered with burr maple and decorated with wide snakewood lines. 13” x 9” x 5”, french polished.
The snakewood lines accentuate the curves and their rich colpur contrasts strongly with the pale maple.
On the lid there are two pairs of curved, kite-shaped details - this is mirrored by a matching shape forming the escutcheon.
The interior includes three trays in figured maple and is lined throughout with green velvet and moiree.
This shows the snakewood inlays at the corners of the trays.
The snakewood escutcheon mirrors the detailing in the lid.
