The Trapezoid Jewelry Box, when closed, represents a trapezoid at each of its 3 sides. Each triangular compartment pivots off the brass rod running straight down the back corner of the box. The compartments are able to turn freely around a 360 degree axis and will not tip due to the weighted base (1 pound of buck-shot).
This is a very rare and possibly my last Cocobolo trapezoid box. It is a spectacular specimen of this valuable wood.
