Treasure Box, Walnut and Poplar
- 3-7/8″ tall, 4″ wide
This handcrafted treasure box is constructed like a barrel, with individual pieces of wood cut at a precise angle and re-assembled to form the blank from which the piece was turned on a wood lathe. This is an example of a form known as a lidded stave bowl.
Crafted from walnut and poplar, the box reflects the natural color and beauty of the wood. No stains were used on the box.
The lid is custom-shaped to fit the cloissone insert, which is formed from powdered glass fused to solid brass castings.
The box is finished with eight to 10 coats of a durable oil finish, hand-rubbed to create a satin sheen.
