Large Leather Round Box

About this project

This was quite a specific commission from a customer, the most important aspect was to include lacing to match existing items.
The lacing was replaced with the customers own silk later on and the cord only was added to show the effect so you are not seeing it at its best.
It is a two layered tub which contains two trays, the top one being removed to give access to the bottom one.
