An exceptional step-up from our standard cases. The main difference being a lid or top that is 2 inches wide. Our standard case has a lid that is 3/4 wide. The deluxe cases have 4 coats of hand rubbed oils applied with a fine sanding between each coat. Each coat brings out more of the woods natural beauty. Each case has Double strength glass and brass plated hardware. On the deluxe cases, the dimensions listed are OUTSIDE measurements. The actual viewing area will be 4 inches less in both length and width. For example a 12x18 will have a viewing area of 8x14.
