This is one of the earlier Palette Boxes, No. Craig’s description is. The box has three dished wells in the lid and a further three mixing areas in a removable tray. There are 12 divisions for tube colour or solid pans and a further four divisions for tube colour adjacent to the thumb hole. This box is suitable for hand holding. Measures 9.5 by 4 by 1 deep and weighs approx 14ozs. The box is finished in dark green. There is some staining from use but is in overall excellent condition. It does have an issue in its fabrication. Six of the twelve wells are too narrow to accept a standard plastic full pan. This was not a problen for me since I made my own pans from tube colors. I cut down pans as needed to fit the narrow slots. These are visible in the photos and will be included with the palette as will six regular pans. This is something I have cherished but not used for some time as I also have a sixteen well Roberson-style palette by Craig. LAST CHANCE, will not be relisted.
