Ottoman Recipe Box

Pete E. Michelinie Fine Furniture
of South Pomfret

The entire box is adorned with a Turkish Ottoman carving pattern.  The hand cut relief carving covers even the bottom of the box.

The underside of the top of this box has a small plinth attached.  This is a recipe card holder, to allow the chef to place a recipe on top for easy viewing.

This box was designed by and made for my wife for her 30th birthday.  We have been quickly filling the space with our tried & true culinary favorites.

It is made from Quarter-sawn White Oak.  The outside was fumed with ammonia to darken it prior to cutting the lid off.  The inside remains much lighter as a result.  It was finished with linseed oil, shellac, and colored paste wax.

Dimensions: 7" W x 5 1/4" T x 5 1/4" D

Price: $1,910
