Recent Finds: Wooden Boxes

Wooden boxes are special finds, utilitarian for storage and yet decorative in shape, craftsmanship and adornment. They are vessels in which we can keep our most treasured possessions, becoming treasured in their own right. At a fairground antique store in New Hampshire, we found the following:

A signed White Cedar Burl Vessel

Fanciful inlay with beautiful patina

Tartanware, a favorite

Wood and mother of pearl geometric inlay

Tiny mosaic of wood seems almost reptilian
