The Waterlilies flip lenticular box is made of a lacquered wooden box with a marquetry of lenticular postcards veneering the outside.
A lenticular flip effect is where the image has a trick of having two images flip to each other depending on how the viewer looks at it.
Each postcard is sliced into small pieces and fitted together like a puzzle. The different directions of the lenticular grooves give a shimmer and movement to the veneer…definitely taking a common, cracker jacks-like novelty and taking it to a high level of decorative art. If I do say myself!
The box measures approximately 6.5″X9.5″X5.5″H. It is off to our New York showroom, Profiles. Contact Russell Raitreri at 212-689-6903 if you are interested.
Jewelry for tables.
Waterlilies ( or Nymphéas) is a sublime series of approximately 250 oil paintings by French Impressionist Claude Monet(1840–1926). The paintings depict his flower garden, pond and bridge at his home in Giverney. They were the main focus of his artistic production during the last thirty years of his life. Many of the works were painted while Monet suffered from cataracts.
