5 1/4" x 2" x 1 1/2"; mango, koa, satine; 11/97
Two very pretty book-matched mango panels on the top, with a very distinctive knot just off-center left to right. It looks lunar to me somehow, and I've taken to calling it the Moon Box... Celestial, somehow. The top frame is a medium-dark koa. The panels on the top are all separated by a delicate red line of satine.
The body is about 2/3 a very pretty mango, with a strip of cinnamon colored koa as the bottom 1/3, separated with a thin strip of satin.
Satine featherslips on the corners.
The colors on this box work very well.
