18K Gold Jewel Chest


Wm. R. Robertson

Recommended Posts

This was a one of a kind I did in the 80's, It is hand cut and engraved 18K gold plates with mill grained edges. The gold plates are mounted over a blackwood box. The lock works……  someday I think I'll have to make on fancier! So many projects, so little time.

 

Also somewhere I have the original drawing I did for this, next time I stumble on it I'll photograph and post it.

 

 

Here is a photo taken as the say "back in the day"… it was digitized from a 35mm slide

And a shot after the beginning of the digital age….

Those millgrain edges are beautiful... that tool still has me puzzled.  So much to learn, and so little time.

What treasures are inside the box?  I am imagining a tiny 1/12th scale Hitty....
