  Dimensions: 33x25x18cm 

(Reference: 1002) Price: £1,500

 

In bloated sarcophagus form with fitted interior.  
This box has incredible attention to detail and is just a joy. The interior of the lid shows four inlaid pairs of scissors - a detail I have never seen before. The interior holds a bespoke set of miniature drawers and needle holders of very clever, neat construction.  It is beautifully made all over.
