Jewellery box.

Hi everyone, whilst i'm still working on the ivory casket i've virtually completed this jewellery box.

 
The main body s ivory whilst the lid has an inlaid section of tortoise shell surrounded by a small ivory band, the mirror inside also has a tiny ivory surround.

 
The removable tray is lined with a red calf leather which i've turned upside down and brushed this gives a felt effect and contrasts perfectly with all the other materials.
 
 
This box measures 1.5'' in width by 1'' in depth and stands a fraction under an inch in height the wood is slightly aged as most boxes of this age would genuinely be,  i would have loved to have put some  antique or even modern jewelry inside but im afraid im not that talented still its a nice little piece.
 
 
This piece will be available on my FOR SALE page.
I've also started working on plans for another project one that will take some considerable time to complete hopefully i can share more details about this in the near future...well busy weekend in store two dogs and two grandchildren to take care of and keep amused for two days Lol!
Have a great weekend everyone. Tony.
