New Zealand Timber Jewellery Box

A note from Sharon
"This was brought back from New Zealand by Geoff
when he went on a L'Oreal Conference - around 1977 (?)

It's quite nicely made - no nails were used!!

It measures 9.75 inches wide, 4.875 inches wide, and 3.125 inches high
(25cm x 12.5cm x 8cm)

It is much bigger than the on that is listed in 'Carters Everything Vintage'
as detailed below - that one is 16cm x 9cm x 4cm"


A very similar jewellery box is listed in the above publication
Reference page 288

Sharon's also has the list of timbers displayed,
however these are stuck on the bottom of the box
Hers is also much larger, being 25cm x 12.5cm x 8cm
The "circa - age" is the same
