Large Ripple Sycamore Box
Made by John Piekaar
An exquisite box made using rippled sycamore by John Piekaar in Co. Antrim.
Exceptional clean lines and beautiful wood grain add a design element to its functionality. Each box’s base is lined with soft fabric for a luxurious finish and has two delicately carved handles on either side for ease of opening. This beautiful box can be used for jewellery or any treasured keepsakes. Attached to the back are two metal hinges which will hold the lid open in place and four simple beads sit on the base of the piece to lift the box subtly from the ground for stability and protection.
Measurements: 30 cm wide, 29cm deep, 13cm tall.
