Moon Flower Marquetry Hardwood Jewelry Chest


SKU: 568477937 Category:


Handmade in Illinois, the Moon Flower Jewelry Chest is handcrafted with heirloom-quality hardwoods. The box is constructed of solid sapele with contrasting wenge-wood handles. A single specimen of wood is used to assure perfect color and matching wood grains, while hidden wooden key segments are added to each mitered corner to add strength and durability. The beautiful floral design on the lid is achieved by means of marquetry, a masterful technique of assembling thin hardwood segments to form a design. The marquetry design consists of maple, wenge, holly, and bloodwood, amid a striking background of burled madrone wood. Within the chest, you’ll find 4 rows of felt ring holders, brass necklace pegs (with built-in elastic pouch to protect pendants) and felt-lined rows for watches or bracelets. Two lower drawers provide more storage, each with “stops” to prevent delicate items from falling out. Within both drawers are divided felt-lined areas for bracelets, brooches and more. Each wooden division may be removed for easy cleaning or to make room for larger items. No two people have the same assortment of jewelry items, so the box easily adjusts to fit your personal collection.
