From our Boxes collection, we are thrilled to offer this fully functional games compendium box veneered in Walnut with quadrant ebony edging. The box complete with a fully fitted interior containing draughts, chess, dominoes, cribbage, backgammon and bezique with a mixture of scorecards and counters. The top two trays are removed via two small tabs, one on each side to reveal the further contents below. The games board drops down from inside the lid with a small catch allowing the users to have multiple games at their disposal, a fantastic box for dinner parties or nights with family or friends. The various counters and pieces carved from bone with the opposition counters stained in red.
The box comes complete with working lock and key.
Walnut comes in many varieties from America to Europe. American Walnut is often a warm yellow-brown to purple-brown colour with a straight grain. European Walnut tends to vary greatly from tree to tree in terms of colour and pattern. From light grey-brown to dark brown with dark grain and irregular markings. Walnut trees often develop large burr growths which when veneered show beautiful rich coloured swirls.
