Large Valet Box in American Black Walnut with Sutherland Tartan

This is a large sized valet box.  The box is made with a deep brown American Black Walnut.  The lid and sides have been veneered with beautiful American Black Walnut Burr panels which gives a deep chocolatey brown background with darker swirls.  These panels are surrounded by Kingwood banding separated by Box and Ebony lines, then bordered on the outside by quarter sawn American Black Walnut.   The lid includes a centrally located crest in Fiddleback Sycamore.

The lid opens to reveal four compartments at the back for watches, each containing a watch pillow lined with Sutherland tartan.  The central rear compartment is designed to present a silver kilt pin in the shape of a sword and brooch in the shape of a shield.  Two compartments at the front on either side hold silver collar stiffeners.  The largest compartment at the front presents a sgian dubh (sock knife).  The two smallest compartments hold rings.  Each compartment is lined in a hand woven ivory coloured silk.

The inside of the lid is lined in matching tartan.

The front of the box is a door which can be lowered to reveal three American Black Walnut drawers, all lined in ivory silk.  The top drawer has three small sections with a larger section to hold pens.  The middle drawer has fifteen sections for cufflinks.  The bottom drawer has four sections of varying sizes.
