Large Inlaid Jewlery box. Marquetry 11.5x8x5.5″//30x20x14cm

 

made of the Thuya Burl and Inlaid with Ebony, Silver, Mother of Pearl  and Lemon wood.

 

This wood is from the Thuya tree (Tetraclinis articulate in  Latin).This biblical tree is a conifer from the cedar family, and is exclusively native to Morocco.

 

Grown exclusively in the Middle Atlas Mountains, Thuya has been revered since Roman times both for its gorgeous burled grain and splendid aroma. Ancient men of wealth demanded their furniture be crafted of this rare wood, which was often used in religious ceremonies. In modern times, Thuya has become synonymous with wealth thanks to its incorporation into luxury products during the last several centuries. In fact, it was the first burled wood to be selected for the dashboard consoles of Rolls Royce’s expensive felt of opulent cars. The fact that the trees grow only in Morocco’s climate- and nowhere else in the world- has lent the wood an air of exclusivity which has heightened global demand.

 

Thuya products often have elaborate forms and detailed inlays which take days to weeks to complete.
