This design is not well executed. It’s even difficult to tell if it’s meant to be a spiral or knotwork as the strands are so had to read. But the technique is similar to the wooden wall hanging. Perhaps both objects were engraved by pupils at Kirkcaldy High School, where Bain taught.

The design is lightly engraved and coloured black. Around it are sets of three punched dots forming triangles. The triple dots pattern is repeated around the lower sides of the box.
