This is a beautiful small wood box with a unique magnetic latch that securely holds its contents. 'The Cricket Box' was named for the unique sound it makes when opening and closing the lid. Each piece is unique and is available in many different exotic woods. The exquisite finish consists of 2 coats of lacquer followed up with hand rubbed paste wax with steel wool. The resulting finish is nice to touch and very durable. The Cricket is a perfect size box for rings, earrings, pills, etc.

You can have a monogram engraved on the top of this box for $5. Please see this listing:

Dimensions: 3.5″(8.9cm) x 1.65″(4.2cm) x .875(2.2cm)

The pieces shown here may or may not be the exact piece you will receive. No two pieces of wood are alike even if they were side by side in the same board, therefore, if you need more views or exact photos, let me know and I will take a few photos for you.

Don't be fooled by the cheap knock offs of this design that you will find here on Etsy. I designed, built , and have been selling this box to over 100 galleries throughout the US for over 2 decades.

Shipped immediately; fast delivery. Beautiful, hand made, and unique in design. I bought this to store guitar picks when traveling, and it holds quite a few. It would also be ideal for small personal objects like rings or medication. Very high quality and reminiscent of old world craftsmanship!

Beautifully made, exactly what I needed. Wasn’t sure how the magnetic closure would work but I was impressed that it hasn’t opened and dumped all my medication at the bottom of my purse.

Very small box which is 3.5" long & just over 1.5" wide. It is however very well made
