Hand crafted in our own woodworking shop at Sweetpea Cottage, this Pennsylvania black cherry dresser or jewelry box is a one-of-a-kind treat for someone special. Crafted like a piece of fine furniture, it is elegantly styled and capped with a sheet of copper metal that has a beautiful hand crafted arts and crafts patina applied to it. The box has been entirely constructed from cherry that was selected for the swirling grain patterns and the interesting black sap deposits that run through the wood. It is styled like the dresser boxes, or jewelry boxes, that were made during the Arts and Crafts era. The lid is mitered and peaks in the middle where the copper is set. The wood has a rich reddish brown color that will continue to darken and enrich with age.
The box measures about 6 7/8 inches long and about 6 7/8 inches wide. The total height including the lid is 4 1/4 inches, with the body of the box alone standing 3 1/4 inches tall. The wood has been left natural to develop more color on its own and the surface has been finished with several coats of a polyurethane/oil finish. Finally the surface has been hand-rubbed with high quality wax. The lid is attached with solid brass stopped hinges. The interior is lined with a piece of brown anti-tarnish cloth to help preserve the surface of any jewelry that you store in it. The feet sit on felt pads to protect any surface that the box sits on.
