Cameo Jewelry Box
It’s based off the Cameo necklace, which first appeared around the time of Alexander the Great. This
distinctive piece of jewelry has enjoyed popularity throughout classical times, the Renaissance and the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Cameos were mostly carved out of stone, lava, shell, glass and plastics. This Cameo is cut out of veneer into marquetry.
The Cameo box is 8” Deep, 15” Long and 5 1/2” Tall. The veneers for the Center Cameo is out of dark maple burl, maple, blood wood, light maple burl and quilted maple. The veneers for the box are out of Chesnutt burl, blood wood and black ebony.
