Trinket boxes with various Celtic designs

Celtic designs chip carved on small basswood trinket boxes.
The larger box is 7x5'' and 1¾'' high and two smaller boxes are 5x5'', also 1¾'' high.
They are finished with dark mahogany gel stain:


Both of the smaller boxes have Celtic knots on the sides and the front:


The design for this box is from artwork on the Shrine of St'Lachtin's Arm:


Satin lining is inserted on the bottom of all three boxes.


A variation of a Celtic cross, the design was found on a stone grave in Ireland: 



The last design is also from an unspecified stone grave in Ireland:

    1. For all chip carvings, for other carvings I use different tools.
