Small Lidded Box in Rosewood and Ebony

I turned this beautiful, little lidded box on a lathe. The body is a rare Indian rosewood. The lid has a finial in ebony. I textured the lid on the lathe as well, and filled the pattern with gold paste

The box is 1⅜” in diameter x 2¾”high with the lid.

The lidded box is an art form embraced by many wood turners. Each has at least one hollowed base and a lid. Sometimes, a box has multiple stacking bases. There are infinite variations in the design of the base and lid. It is a form that allows artists to show their creativity and skill. It also is a great medium for showing the interesting characteristics of wood. Lidded boxes can be useful, but most often they are collected and displayed as objet d’art. They typically are small and relatively inexpensive making them fun to collect.
