and the horizon.

The corners of the box are inlaid with light colored hardwood splines and the interior is lined with felt.
Each box has an inlaid brass diamond on the lid.
Individual custom engraved brass plaques can be mounted on the storage box, and are
available in single or large quantities.
Note that the inlaid brass diamond cannot be engraved.
