"Matilda" Style Box

A customer wanted a box like one seen in the movie "Matilda". We exchanged some ideas and came up with this design. It features a "teapot" like profile and elegant carvings. The box lid features a rope-like border.

I have some variations of this box from which you can choose. The original box is made with black walnut and embellished with gold-painted carvings and brass feet. Carvings on the top are optional. I have also made the box in cherry with V carvings unpainted and antique brass feet - my personal favorite. You can have your box personalized if you wish, with initials, names, or phrases.

What ideas do you have to personalize your box? I would love to discuss them with you.

Price varies depending upon options.

    An all around fantastic experience. The box arrived in great shape, and it looks absolutely gorgeous. Can't wait to see my fiancée's reaction upon opening it!

    Dick was very responsive and incredibly fast with this order! The box is as beautiful as I had hoped it would be. The shape is so elegant, and the finish and carvings are beautiful. I would likely order this box in a smaller size if I had it to do over, simply because I don't know how I am going to fill this up with chocolate!

    Absolutely love it!! This was an intended as an engagement gift, and my now fiancé absolutely loves it! Dick was pleasurable to work with, he really made sure that the chocolate box was exactly what I was looking for. Very fast service and shipping would definitely work with him on other custom made projects.

    The Matilda chocolate box came out even better then the pictures show. It’s beautiful! Dick was able to have it completed and to me by the time I needed it (which I didn’t give him too much time as it was for an anniversary gift)!
    I’ve already bragged and showed it off and everyone loves how perfect it is!
    Thanks so much!!
