Confetti, 1980s Lacquered Jewelry Box by Hollis Fingold, Signed USA

Confetti Lacquered box handmade in the 1980s by Hollis Fingold at Radar Design in Denver, Colorado. Airbrushed paint on wood. Signed. Depth: 4.5", Width: 4.5", Height: 6.5".

A confetti design embellished with shimmering glitters takes center stage on this box. Neon pink, gold, blue, green, and orange hues dance over a black backdrop.

The element of surprise extends to the interior padding, which has a vivid red fabric with hand-drawn black squares bordered by textured gold glitter zig-zags. Inside the box and under the lid, neon pink spots look like playful splatters against the black canvas.

Shaped like alien pets, Hollis Fingold's boxes appear to hover on their four pointy legs, with lid handles resembling punk hairdos. They are sensuous yet dangerous creatures that one must adore to tame and open.
