Caring Home Sought for our less than Perfects!
Our wooden boxes are handcrafted using hundreds of different types of rosewood found in Madagascar. Each type of rosewood being sustainable. There is only one rosewood which is not allowed to be exported in large amounts that being the red one which is used on certain pictures, the amount being so small, it is allowed in marquetry.
Each Secret Box is painstakingly made by hand, each piece being carefully fitted together so that it sits correctly. It is mainly the lids of these Secret Wooden Boxes which are made using the marquetry technique which is handcrafted. This is done by applying, in this case, pieces of rosewood which have been cut or sawn into particular shapes which consist of parts of a picture, such as an animal, a landscape scene or a geometric pattern.
Our boxes come in a variety of colourful designs, usually in shape of a picture of an animal or an everyday Madagascan scene.The colours being dependant on the type of rosewood that has been used for a particular piece within the picture which is normally on the lid of the box unless it is a treasure chest, then there is also a small picture done in marquetry, either side of the lid.
Once made and shipped, every piece is lovingly French polished by hand until they shine!
These wooden boxes are perfect as birthday or Christmas Gifts for a loved one, relative, friend or acquaintance.
Why not select from our NEW range of Secret Boxes from Stylish Country Life Ltd. Sure to please someone in your life!
These special little boxes are clean and house trained but suffer with minor complexes and self-confidence issues as they know they´re not as beautiful or co-operative as they could be.
Some are stubborn, they won´t open easily; but with gentle encouragement and persistent use, they will come around to opening just as beautifully and as smoothly as the others - it will just take time for them to adjust to their new surroundings.
Others had a pretty rough journey on their long trip from Madagascar, they have been jostled against their neighbours, their carton thrown by an airline handler, or forced open by a mean Customs man. But, it doesn´t mean they´re unlovable or that they are worse than their brothers and sisters, just a little scarred, both physically and emotionally. This does mean that they are a little more nervous of strangers now than they used to be!

Others, who should be beautiful young Art Deco ladies, have not quite managed to make the grade and to the untrained eye may even look like witches or hags, but as you know, beauty is only in the eye of the beholder...
Hi Charlotte, I can´t use these photos - can you send me some more please? Thanks
Secret Wooden Boxes
Due to the handmade nature of these boxes - they are all made from Madagascan rose wood - there are small imperfections, one of them being marks made by the fretsaw when sawing the wood to fit together into a box.
These imperfections are normally very small, but in the case of our Little Reject Boxes, they can be seen and not everyone wants a glaring imperfection, however, they are unique, just like our handmade Polish Pottery pieces!
