bx47.jpg (25009 bytes) [BX47] (Size: 2"D x 4 1/8"H)
Box of rosewood-colored dymondwood, a manufactured wood product consisting of birch veneers which are dyed and then fused into a solid material bonded with acrylic resin under heat and pressure. This box was designed to reflect classical Western architecture. The base is inlaid in a diamond pattern with materials used by guitar makers and luthiers--mother-of-pearl fret marker dots and a plastic ivory-grained material used for binding the edges of instruments. The finial is blackwood with ivoroid cutouts and a spear-shaped finial tip.
