Gene Jonson and Robert Marcius Lacquered Box for Dara International
Our fine box with chrome finish and black lacquered finish and brass mounted lid was designed by Gene Jonson and Robert Marcius for Dara International. Chromium surface signed "Jonson & Marcius" "#11364" and "(c) 1983". 6 1/4 by 8 1/4 by 10 1/2 inches.
Lid and box are lined with black velvet-like fabric that is in good condition. There is a small chip loss to the lacquered finish on the top edge of the lid near a corner, a small chip loss to the outer underside of the lid and a handful of small chip losses to the flat underside of the lid, plus scuffs and rubbing wear to the lacquer. There is oxidation to the brass and areas of light pitting to the chromium surfaces plus light scratches.
