This is when being honest puts one well behind the pack in the race to make money!  Wish I had the imagination and Chutzpah to do this kind of thing.  But then I'd have to sleep at night, so perhaps not.  I did, however, buy any number of old carving set boxes once upon a time just because I like old wooden boxes.  Never occurred to mew to use them for anything other than keeping trinkets in though. 'Bother!', as Pooh says.

The insert in the lid looks good, it might be worth asking where he/she had them made, but compared to that horrible polyester velvet in the base well, that just screams fake.

I thought someone called oma (or similar?) sold them.

How about this box, commissioned by a German officer POW in Colsterdale camp, Yorkshire, England. That's if you want to believe the story.
 
I wanted to see how easy it is to make them so knocked it up over the weekend.

Time? Ha! I wish that was true but I’m always flat out, spending most days working hard trying to remember what I’ve just forgotten.

Mate it's easy.

Some card, an old box, a knife, ruler, felt and a couple of crosses to draw around.

I've now turned it into a box for cufflinks.

That's exactly how I do mine, the difference for me is that with many enamelled pieces they are for storage and protection only. I don't sell my pieces, old cutlery boxes are a goldmine for this sort of thing, some of mine even the boxes are homemade from bits of card, old velvet and satin. Walker and Hall, I've got a few of their boxes!!

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
