While we know this to be a circa 1960’s blanket box, it was clearly designed with a life on the high seas in mind. The Pirate treasure chest inspired hinges and handles and the carvings are all hallmarks of a bygone era.


The box actually belongs to our IT consultant.The guy who helped set us up with smart technologies and a host of great advice.


Normally reserved for his mainstream clientele, Tony is more used to dealing with larger SME’s (one of which I sold off 3 years ago) but because of a history and great association spanning many years, Tony has been kind enough to keep us on so restoring his wife’s prized blanket box is the least we can do in return. Can’t wait to show you all the finished piece next week.
