Description Art Deco Cigar Box veneered with stunning Amboyna with varying shades separated by bone stringing with pink shagreen corners on the top. Very unique stylish box typical of the Art Deco period.

The interior of this stylish art deco box is lined with satin cedar.

Amboyna, also known as Andaman Padauk, Maiou or Narra grows in parts of East Asia (Malaysia, the Philippines and Borneo) and is often golden brown to red brown in colour with red grain. It is a firm wood with wavy and often interlocking grain making it difficult to work with hand tools, despite this it turns well and produces a high polish.

The Burr from these trees varies in colour from a golden yellow to a deep red with sharp, close burr pips. It is very sought after and used for only the finest furniture.
