The lid is made of hickory with purpleheart and maple trim. The flower is purpleheart, holly, yellow heart and wenge. The stems are curupixa and the leaves are blue-stained pine with curupixa veins. The box is leopardwood with purpleheart feet and keys. The inside lid is veneer marquetry. The bottom is alder with sapelle veneer and felt lining. The dense leopardwood box amplifies the sound from the 18 note Sankyo movement.
