Wooden Pencil Box Cat and Mouse by Loutul on Etsy

Product Description:

A wooden pencil box with a story ! A cat and mouse game in pewter where cat is chasing mouse and as little mouse goes around the corner through his little house he comes out the other side and decides to get his own back. An exhausted cat decides to catch a cat-nap on the lid away from scary little mice !

Emboss a name on this delightful box to make a wonderful personalised gift for that someone special.

The box measures 205cm long x 5cm wide x 4cm high (8" x 2" x 1.5")

I emboss each piece individually myself by hand using only hand tools. I fill the raised areas from the back to prevent denting. I then age the image by using a patina and finally I hand polish it to give it the antique silver look.

Pewter retains its lustre for many years and does not require any special cleaning techniques. If necessary, it can be cleaned with a normal household metal polish which is applied and buffed with cotton wool.
