Beautiful Blue with white swirling throughout. The box is carved with sailing ships and a nautical theme. It is signed but I cant make out the name. (Pic 11) The box measures approx: 12 1/2"W X 7 1/2"H and is 2 5/8D (with the lid closed). This heavy box has 3 compartments inside that are lined.The inside and outside are both like new. I see no chips or cracks, the velvety lining looks never used. Remember this is a vintage item and I may have missed something but it is a beautiful box. These boxes were made by Incolay Studios between 1972 - 1980. They started in business in 1966 but did not start making these boxes until 1972.
The boxes are made of their registered Incolay (IN Colored Layers) patented stone. For centuries the great sculptured works of Cameo art have been presented in museums worldwide.
The artisans at Incolay utilize a process by which they are able to reproduce with precision and detail the finest works of antiquity as today's exceptional artists. The handcrafted product is called INCOLAY stone. INCOLAY stone is a complex stone with various colored natural minerals and coupling agents.Since each piece is handcrafted and has a unique stone color formation, no two pieces are identical. The name INCOLAY is a coined word derived from "in-layers of color" or In-Color lay. Inclolay's pieces are handcrafted in the United States.
