This watch & pen box is constructed of solid padauk & birdseye maple, which was hand selected for the beauty of its grain and stability of its structure. The particular padauk board used in this box originated in Africa and features a striking flowing grain pattern and deep red brown color. In addition the maple board used for the top medallion, dividers and pulls features very rare and dramatic birdseye figuring which provides the box with an almost holographic effect when viewed from varying angels.
The top of this box lifts to reveal storage for eight watches. Eight velvet watch pillows are also included with the box which provide a safe and attractive resting place for the watches. Underneath the top watch compartment a sliding drawer provides storage for up to 17 fountain pens. The fountain pen tray is also removable to allow for storage of other items. All compartments are lined in felt.
No stains or dyes were used in the making of this piece and all colors seen are the natural colors of the wood which will continue to deepen and enrich over the years.
The piece is signed and dated on the bottom.
