Stunning Memory Box - Pantheon Theatre
The box itself represents a classic Pantheon Theatre, and inside a stage opens out revealing Dickensian street scenes and galleries of famous spectators all recreated in amazing marquetry work.
Over 10,000 pieces of marquetry were hand laid, the box took over 2,300 hours to create and the traditional French Polishing alone took over 300 hours (no spray or lacquer was used).
The resulting Memory Box is a stunning statement of the Cabinet Makers' art, for further information and images of the box:
