Gatsby Shagreen Box – Grey
Our original and still best selling box – Gatsby Box Grey Shagreen with Ebony edging detail is simple and smart. This lockable box has a plain rosewood interior and hand made ebony escutcheon.
Shagreen, often called galuchat or stingray, is a richly textured strong material which has been used for centuries as a decorative surface.
This luxurious and exotic material is most closely associated with the Art Deco period, when interior decorators such as Jean Michel Frank and Clement Rousseau use stingray skins to decorate furniture, lighting and create amazing wall panelling.
Shagreen does not require any special cleaning. To maintain the natural radiance of our shagreen pieces, we recommend gentle dusting with a soft brush and dry cloth. Please avoid contact with any wet or oily. Also avoid exposure to extreme temperatures.
Available with our without jewellery compartment.
Shagreen does not require any special cleaning. Please avoid contact with anything wet or oily, or any cleaning agent. Please protect shagreen from extensive sun exposure, which will cause the colour to fade and skin may contract. Avoid exposure to extreme temperatures. You only need to lightly dust with a soft cloth and the item will remain an object of beauty.
