A small American Black Walnut valet box or Gentleman’s box. The box includes a tray for jewellery, cuff links and other accessories.
The exterior of the handmade wooden box is covered in a chocolatey brown American Black Walnut burr veneer. Darker brown lines enhance the grain. Additionally, the edges of the box are chocolate brown straight grained Walnut. These are inlaid with Kingwood lines of a dark purplish or reddish brown with darker black streaks which complements brown Walnut.
A soft sheepskin suede in Peacock Green, lines the interior of the box, complementing the colour of the Walnut. Luxurious suede lines the Walnut tray and as the tray is suspended in the front compartment, this results in there being plenty of usable space underneath.
Brass stopped hinges and a brass sliding catch are fitted to the box.
Finally the box is finished with a hand applied high sheen shellac.
This kind of Walnut normally has a very straight grain, subsequently giving a very traditional looking pattern with a warm colour.
