Skull Lacquer Box Engraved 2 Colors


Each skull is initially engraved in two colors onto thick cotton stock, then the image is laminated onto heavy wood. Next they are richly covered in satiny lacquer. You can see the depth of the engraved surface, which captures the light in a very special way, under the heavy application of the luscious lacquer.

This is a diminuitive jewel of a box and the dimensions are appx.  5.5 x 3 and 1.75" in height, and has black sides and thin black trim.

This entirely handcrafted all wood product is produced using the centuries old tradition and method of hand pouring multiple layers of lacquer.  Each layer is individually hand polished, taking many days. This is the only way to achieve the deep resonating colors and the luxurious glowing finish for which lacquered items are treasured. The resulting patina is truly gorgeous, as well as being heat and alcohol resistant.
