Stickle Block 4-Inch Box in Birdseye Maple
This pattern comes from the Civil-War Era Jane Stickle Quilt. This box is veneered in Birdseye Maple, and the pattern is Purpleheart. This is an older box, so the Purpleheart has aged into a rich wine color.
The little dot on the side is a veneer inlay and helps to orient the top for perfect fit, and so the grain patterns are matched for each side. The box is 4" square, 3 1/4" high, with Birch inside. The interior bottom is lined with black velvet, and the outside bottom is black felt.
