Crafted of richly patterned burl wood, this decorative
box features a gorgeous natural texture. The edges of the piece and the cylindrical handle are trimmed in gold for a brilliant contrast.
Especially popular in the 19th century, faux bois--"fake
wood" in French--has made a comeback. This delightful box is actually made of iron, but it's been painted to give the appearance of wood inlays.
