Wood Scallop Box
This sculpted wood jewelry box , hand crafted by wood artist Eugene Watson, named "The Scallop Box", was inspired by a sunset walk along a pacific coast beach in Panama. The three dimensional lid represents many of the shells found during the walk.
The shape of the scallop is known as ‘pecten’, a Latin word for comb. Pliny, a Roman philosopher, gave scallops the name because their round outline with ribs radiating outwards reminded him of a style of comb popularly used during the Roman Empire.
A wonderful gift for a shell lover and one who appreciates fine wood craft. This "Scallop" shell box is lined with Ultrsuede and features an abalone/paua shell inlay and is a great size for watches, necklaces, bracelets or small desk accessories.
It measures 8" x 4" x 1.5"
Hand crafted in Colorado
