Inlaid Joker Boxes

I bought the little one of these boxes (the faded one)  in southern Spain in Dec 1987.

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.

Moving beyond the boxes, want to see more jokers? Here's some article about different types of jokers:
