This artisan crafted box is based on a traditional antique Norwegian tine (tee-na). The box is made using solid beech wood selected for its straight grain and color. The sides were steam bent and, in the manner of many antique boxes, fastened together with rows of split-reed chain stitching. The sides of the box have all been carefully hand textured to produce a highly tactile look and feel. The edge of the base, edge of the lid, and handle have been carefully grooved to provide accents. This tine is a perfect gift for someone special. It would also make a great desk box, executive lunch box, jewelry box, or sewing box. Made like a piece of fine furniture, it has been completely artisan crafted from start to finish using the absolute best materials.
The box measures about 9 1/8 inches long. The total height to the tip of the corner posts is 5 7/8 inches. It measures 5 1/4 inches across at the base and the lid is a bit larger measuring about 5 3/4 inches across. The box was fumed in concentrated ammonia gas as was done by Gustav Stickley on his fine Arts and Crafts pieces. This yields a beautiful golden-brown color. Finally, it was treated with several coats of polyurethane varnish which enhances the color of the wood. The grain of the wood, color, and style all give this box a strong Danish Modern, or Scan, feel so that it will fit nicely into any contemporary décor. Yet, it also maintains the traditional look of early Norwegian boxes. What a great gift for the Viking in your family! Can you imagine a more unique box to hold your keep-sake treasures? They are pieces of art.
