Boxes for all kind of trinkets


Don S. Shoemaker tropical woods boxes are well known. I have seen them on the web and on display in vintage boutiques in Mexico. They were mainly produced in rosewood, in different designs and shapes, many of them include elaborate parquetry work, in cueramo, cocobolo, granadilla, white mahogany and many other rare tropical wood species. Don´s shop always had a complete assortment of boxes for all possible purposes you could image.

I am including some pictures of a set of boxes from my personal collection, a sample of a typical Don S. Shoemaker parquetry box and a very original “Egyptian Falcon box”. One evening in Santa Maria Guido while talking about all kind of birds and magical creatures, Don stood up and came back with this astonishing Egyptian falcon box. What a gift!
