Heart Box – Shagreen Red
The Heart Box in Red shagreen is a true token of love for someone special. Made by hand, this trinket box has a plain rosewood interior and felt base.
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. Available colours: Pearl Oyster and Black Shagreen.
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.
Wooden surfaces do not require any special cleaning other than a clean with a damp cloth and immediate dry wipe with a clean lint fabric. Please do not use wood polishes or waxes with silicone dispersants. Protect from extensive exposure to the sun, this may cause fading. Avoid exposure to extreme temperatures and abrasive cloths.
