Greene & Greene Jewelry Box
This a Greene and Greene style jewelry box. It is made of sugar pine, ancient redwood and redgum eucalyptus. It is finished with linseed oil and polyurethane. It also features Brusso hardware for the hinges. The hinges have a positive stop just past vertical, 95 degrees. The box is unlined.
The sugar pine is from a very large tree that fell in the Applegate Valley of southern Oregon over 20 years ago. The grain is very beautiful and unique for a pine species. The redwood is from a tree that was salvaged from the bottom of the Eel River in northern California. This tree was probably well over 1,000 years old. The grain is very tight - over 30 rings per inch.
