I acquired the second one on the Amalfi Coast in Italy in 2011.
Both are inlaid boxes. For those who don't know what the means: It means the artwork is done by laying in small "tiles" or pieces of wood to form the designs. It's not painted in, it's "laid in", hence the term inlaid.
I keeps jokers in them that need to be added to the collection. Its the second place place for them after they've been in my wallet for a few weeks.
To know more about this collection of jokers and the artifacts related to jokers that I have, I'd recommend the joker collections About Me page which covers masks, joker boxes, and why I don't collect clown stuff.
