Art Deco Glass topped jewelry or cufflink case

A cuff-link col­lec­tor want­ed to dis­play and store 180 pairs of cuff-links. This case was designed to do that in a restrained man­ner. The woods and style were cho­sen to com­ple­ment the buy­ers’ fur­ni­ture, with a lit­tle piz­zazz. The glass is ger­man water glass — colour­less but with a very slight pat­tern to dif­fuse the view when not seen straight on. The box edges and knobs are inlaid with ebony.

A sec­ond box was made and fit­ted out as a more tra­di­tion­al jew­el­ry box. It holds watch­es or pens, rings or cuff-links, pock­et watch­es or pen­dants, ear­rings or tie-tacks.

The over­all design was very suc­cess­ful and would work as well in a three draw­er con­fig­u­ra­tion with­out the glass top. A lock could also be built into the case. Some oth­er com­bi­na­tions of woods appro­pri­ate for this case can be found here.
