Description

Bringing the joy of play to vibrant life, our Geometric Turquoise Marquetry double cards box is a stunning showcase of the art of inlay. Incorporating several design details from our luxury playing cards, including the gold-toothed Ace of Spades in a winning hand of four aces, the artwork on the box was hand-drawn by Alexandra before being translated by an artist who is an authority in the rare craft of wood marquetry.

Entirely handmade in the UK from sycamore, walnut and bird’s eye maple wood, dyed a vivid shade of turquoise, the hypnotic geometric pattern that decorates the box draws the eye in with its sleek geometric lines, inspired by the eye-catching zebra-like patterning on the feathers of a Lady Amherst pheasant. The box opens to reveal a leather tray holding Alexandra’s limited-edition Signature cards in both colourways, which lifts up to reveal a score pad and pencil beneath.

The remarkable design is further elevated with beautifully executed details, including polished brass hinges, intricate dovetail joints on the removable tray and shadows behind the cards that introduce the illusion of depth, achieved using the trompe l’oeil technique. The marquetry has been perfectly aligned for a seamless join where the lid meets the box, with a very natural finish that allows the texture and grain of the wood to be appreciated.

Please get in touch to discuss personalisation options, which include laser-engraved initials, dates or a custom engraving of a handwritten message.
