We at New Stone Age have a healthy obsession with tiny handmade objects, so when we came across these magical little boxes it was love at first sight. Each of these whimsical shadowboxes features a tiny wooden sailboat, floating peacefully on a wooden sea of waves. Turn the crank on the bottom of the box and watch the waves dance up and down. Each wave box measures approximately 2 1/2" wide, 2 1/2 " tall and 2" deep, making it the perfect desk accessory for those seeking a little seafaring escapism, an apropos addition to a bookshelf filled with nautical adventures, or a toy perfect for sparking the imagination of a young sailor. In short, these little boxes of wonder are the perfect gift for dreamers and ocean lovers of all ages (although, because there are small parts involved, we do not recommend them for very young children).
Wave boxes come in a few styles to choose from: red sailboat with blue sky and clouds; red sailboat with night sky and moon; red sailboat with nautical charts; and pirate ship with night sky. Scroll down to see the different options, and pick one from the drop-down list below. Please note that, due to the handmade nature of the wave boxes, yours may differ slightly from the ones pictured.
Wave boxes are handmade from start to finish in Portland, Oregon, by a small collective of creatives inspired by a few core values: "Live in the moment, find joy in the small things, seek inspiration, follow your dreams, be brave."
