Easter Egg Trinket Box

A lovely, tactile, hand carved trinket box, made from a piece of cherry wood, fashioned into the shape of an egg. All done by eye and using hand tools, the outer shell is worked up to a silky smooth lustre, while the interior has been gilded with copper leaf. I have coated the copper interior with shellac for protection and durability. The 'egg' will rest on a flat underside and has some green baize patches to protect your furniture surface from being scuffed. The natural faults in the wood have been stabilised with epoxy resin, which dries like glass, before a final finishing of sanding sealant and numerous coats of natural bees wax to brink out the grain.

 

This is a beautiful piece, ideal for keeping small treasures in such as my amber collection (pictured for display purposes, not for sale) and would make a unique and very special Easter gift.

 

Measurements: Length 7 inches. Width 4.25 inches. Height 3.5 inches.

 

Please note, my style of carving is natural and freehand predominantly using knives and chisels after initial roughing out. I don't believe in overworking my pieces to a clinical, pristine finish such as you might find on a cheap, machine produced item on the high street. I often work from found pieces of wood which may have twisted and cracked as they weathered and dried naturally. I like to leave the occasional old scar as well as others formed during the process of carving, to give each piece a unique character and form a direct connection back to my hands and hint at the previous life of the piece of wood
