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.
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.
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.
