made in britain
can be personalised
This generously-sized British made box with exclusive carved name personalisation is great for any occasion where there will be wonderful memories to save.
Here's a memory box that exhibits bags of bygone charm. From it's aimiable 'antique' finish woodwork through to its stunning carved personalisation, it quietly exudes craft and classic understatement.
With the absence of fussy design, quirky motifs or twee verse, this box is timeless. It will be as charming and relevant when rediscovered by its owner in 25 years as it is now.
This all-wooden carved memory (or keepsake, if you prefer) box is ideal for a birth, birthday, bar mitzvah, marriage, or retirement. Limited availability due to the time taken to produce. Order early to avoid disappointment.
After hand-shaping, finishing and waxing, we personalise your all wooden box by mechanically carving your chosen text into its wooden lid.
After carving your text, it is 'whitened' to show more strongly against the contrasting wood, giving the text a subtle white 'limed' look (as well as the 3D relief).
Please check your personalisation details are entered correctly when finalising your order, as we cannot accept amendments once your order has been placed.

The box is skilfully aged and finished by hand and has been designed to look rustic, old and worn. Each box will be unique!
Exact colour and patina/ grain on your box will vary depending on the batch of wood and differences in the hand finishing
The inside of the box matches the outside, however we do not sand the inside so it may have rough patches. Due to this it can pick up more of the wax in areas giving a patchy look.
