Real Cedar Trunk Handmade Wood Puzzle Jewelry Box John Wilkerson Micanopy FL Vtg --- 5.75" tall, approx 6" wide on the top and 6" wide on the base and about 9" long measuring out to the branch area. To clarify a few things, I have this listed in the Antiques category (because of the wooden box subcategory), it is not an antique, I don't know the vintage, maybe the artist is still making boxes. 2nd, I call this a "Puzzle Box", it has a piece that you need to lift out in order to slide the top off, so not much of a puzzle/mystery, just a different type of lid and "latch". --- Stamped with makers name inside lid as shown.
Made from an actual piece of Cedar trunk. I really love this peice, the choice of the shape, with the extended part of the branch and various knots.I don't know how the surface is finished, you can see the nice polish on the top of the lid, I love the deep lines of the outer trunk, I assume the outer bark was removed first. -- Would be fun to count the rings on the top to see how old the tree was. -- The top edge of the interior has some applied residue on one side and down in the groove for the lid, I'm wondering if the maker was going to apply a material to that top edge. Inside bottom is cushioned velvet.
Interior is about 3.5"-3.75" deep. Interior is 4" wide on the long side and 3" across to the channel for the lid stop piece --- I just looked up some of his other boxes, I really love this one, it feels "composed" like a sculpture with that just a bit of trunk offsetting the bulk of the trunk, as if the branch is partially buried and coming out of the ground --- See photos for condition details. -- I don't have a way to arrange for a local pick-up of this item, I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
