We are pleased to bring back some of our most popular boxes. All are 5/8 deep, but may be up to 3/4 deep at no extra charge. We do not offer custom boxes any longer. These are copper, with a slightly domed lid made with a hammer, not a press, just like the originals. A piece of linen will make the boxes food or tobacco safe and give you a nice place to show off some fine embroidery.
