Christening Box

The design on this box, commissioned by the child's grandmother, reflected the mother's love of carousels and teddy bears, the father's carpentry skills (via the tools scattered about) and the child's initials on the blocks that the teddy bear sits upon.

On the underside of the lid is carved the appropriate data announcing the birth of the child.
