Impala Jewelry Box # 2

By Milton Mizell



1 in stock

This Impala jewelry box is number two in a series of modern African-themed jewelry boxes. Patterned after an African Kuba cloth, the top has a veneered panel of wenge, curly maple and walnut. The curved top frame is made of wenge with a zebrawood handle affixed with Brusso brass hinges. The sides are also wenge with inlaid patterns of curly maple. The box title was inspired by the male Impala’s sublime chicane-shaped horns that are distinctly captured in the turned ribbed walnut legs adorning its four outer corners. The interior has storage for six watches, 18 rings or earrings, 30 collar stays and multiple bracelets and necklaces. The interior tray and box bottom is lined with pig suede. The box exterior is finished with satin lacquer.
