A JOHN LENNON AND YOKO ONO GIFTED STERLING SILVER BOX
1980
sterling silver box made by Schroth's Silversmiths, Montville, NJ, retailed by Cartier, with a wood-lined interior and mirrored interior base. The interior of the lid is engraved, "Double Fantasy / Christmas 1980 / N.Y.C. / John & Yoko."

Double Fantasy was Lennon's last studio album, a collaboration with Ono released on November 17 of that year. The pair commissioned these boxes as gifts for friends, with twelve in total believed to have been made. Lennon was tragically killed on December 8, but Ono fulfilled his wishes and distributed these boxes to the recipients her husband had intended.
4 x 3 x 2 in.
