Trinket Box No. 2

Size: 3.5"W x 4.5"L x 3.5"H
$ 150.00 (SOLD)
I was asked to make a "trinket box" by a curator for a museum/historical society after he had seen my work published in "Early American Life". The challenge was to make something in a small size yet have enough details to make it interesting. I loved making this piece and will continue making "trinket boxes" as a result.

This piece uses a box I built and the layer with Tramp Art. The interior is lined with hand dyed velvet. There are five "trinkets" inside…an old "clay" ball and four vintage Cracker Jack's prizes.

Approximately 35 pieces of hand cut and chip carved wood were used to create this original piece of art.
