Criollo is a brand of cigars from Nicaragua.
I picked up this box at Community Forklift.
I thought it would make a nice pen (or cigar) holder.
I added an inlay top featuring found black walnut and several of my most recent patterns.
I finished the exterior of the box with a satin water based poly.
I left as much of the original labels as possible….
using the original drawers to hold pens.
I particularly love the red seal and ribbons on the front.
Please Note: This unique one of a kind item can be purchased at the Brentwood Arts Exchange.
