This piece started out as a plain wooden wine box. It is now covered inside and out with maps and pages from a vintage encyclopedia. A sweet porcelain doll's head, with closed eyes, apparently dreaming of places she wants to escape to, sits inside. Vintage children's blocks spell out her thoughts, and a small mirror reflects the doll's face. Inside, a wind-up music box plays a dreamy tune.
The box is covered in front with glass, and topped with a clear glass knob. (click on image to enlarge)
