luxurious woods

Our Classic double cards box features Alexandra’s signature abstract design, translated in two favourite varieties of wood that she regularly returns to in her marquetry creations: rich, warm walnut and rippled sycamore.

Bold inspiration

Drawing the eye in with its sleek, graphic lines, the hypnotic geometric pattern that decorates each box was inspired by the magnificent, zebra-like patterning on the feathers of a Lady Amherst pheasant, which Alexandra collected as a child.

A rare handcraft

Hand-drawn by Alexandra before being translated in wood, the design honours the suits in a pack of cards. The marquetry expert recreates the “trompe l’oeil” effect in Alexandra’s design using a technique known as hot sand shading, which brings a beautiful sense of three-dimensionality to the inlaid cards on the sides of the box.

a superb finish

Handmade by Alexandra’s highly skilled master joiners, the marquetry is perfectly aligned for a seamless finish where the lid meets the box, which is further elevated with thoughtful design details, including polished brass hinges and intricate dovetail joints on the removable wooden tray.

Endless opportunities for play

The wooden tray is designed to neatly store two packs of our limited-edition Signature cards in two different colourways. To keep track of your card games, the tray lifts up to reveal a Signature score pad, which is printed with some of Alexandra’s best-known designs on sustainable Colorplan paper.
