JB2 Jewellery box in mahogany


The box is made from solid African mahogany (Khaya spp), with the lid made from an extremely rare piece of quarter-sawn, mottled-figured, African mahogany. Decoration is in ebony (Diospyros spp) and sterling silver. (Hallmarked at the Edinburgh assay office.)

Finished in shellac and beeswax. Overall size: width 30 cm, depth 18 cm, height 6.5 cm.

Design elements

This jewellery box is based on a modernist theme of basic geometric shapes. The circle is incorporated into the hinge and handle, with the rest of the box based on strong straight line elements.

The highly figured wood of the top is emphasised by the finish of many coats of shellac, and this natural element softens the overall piece.

The base forms a subtle shadow line that complements the front and helps separate the piece from whatever it is placed on.
