Cherrywood box hand quarter-sawn and carved by Tom Latané with hand made iron hardware and lock. 2006
The customer sent an antique ward box from an iron chest, for which he needed a key. Tom forged the key, which has a symbolic bit...notice

The mouth in the repoussé face opens and closes when the key is turned in the lock.
