Underwater Box

Jane Short

A highly unusual circular engraved and enamelled box with hinged lid, from Jane Short, datemarked for 2011. Her wonderfully detailed circular  engraved decoration to the outside of the box strongly resembles encrustations that might be found on a long-submerged piece, whilst inside is fully enamelled in deep blues, and formed on an undulating surface is very reminiscent of deep water. Fabulous piece.
