Quilted Maple Dovetail Memory Boxes - Medium
Quilted maple is traditionally reserved for the finest work and approaches an iridescent three-dimensional glow reminiscent of glistening wet sand after sea retracts from a beach.
A fine maple memory box of dovetail form, with quilted maple top, strung to the edge with boxwood. The lower section is of crown maple, with the front being fitted with a handmade lock and decorative key. The lid has self-supporting precision made hinges. The memory box is traditionally hand French polished to a silky smooth beeswax finish with the interior being upholstered a classic, natural shade of fine suede called 'Vision'. (Faux shede is available on request). Each Box is identified to the underside with a marquetry lozenge depicting the Wheathills Lady motif, an identifying number and the date the box was created.
