Treen Boxwood tour de force nest of boxes.Victorian
Amazing Boxwood with ebonising decoration, incredibly turned ever decreasing nest of lidded boxes until you hit the hidden sixpence. A puzzle for children to guess how many boxes there are, and shows the skills of the turner with such tolerances in the thinness of the timber and tightness of the fittings.
