Wood Marquetry Box with Compass

In stock

Authenticity Certificate

Our Illinois artisan crafts this box so meticulously that it appears as a solid block of satin-smooth wood. Once the hand-fit dovetail lid is discovered, it easily slides open to reveal the compass within. Inlays of padauk, maple, bubinga and wenge woods create a graceful marquetry design. 1 3/4'' x 2'' x 1/2''.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper echelon may delight in the exclusivity of an object, crafting culture permeates the trendy shops of modern-day, millennial Brooklyn, and led the grassroots, ultra-feminist Riot Grrrl movement of the early 1990s. From punk musicians to polished socialites, an appreciation for handcrafted, one-of-a-kind wares is a common thread that connects us to our humanity. This work reminds us that our fingers can do so much more than just operate machines. It connects us to our cultures, our ancestors, our neighbors, and even strangers from faraway places, just through placing a single object between our palms.
