Heirloom quality jewelry chest
So aesthetically satisfying to look at on my counter. I enjoyed organizing my jewelry after lining the drawers with black felt paper. The chest is a redwood color with exquisite leather scrolling (no mirror inside, which I like because I would not use it) with one large storage drawer on top, and nine drawers that open, but do not come all the way out, so you can not drop the drawers. I love looking at and using it. I splurged to buy it for myself and am so glad I did.
MARVELOUS PIECE OF ART
I have been impressed with the style of the artist Flora Polo. Excellent color combination that has totally changed my family room to a colonial style. For that reason I bought more items from her collection and the collection of other Peruvian artists because they are professionals in the finishes and details. Thank you Novica for bringing these amazing products to the market.
The hand tooling of the leather on this piece took my breath away, so I decided to give it to my dear friend as a housewarming gift and she loved it. The craftsmanship can?t be beat and it is truly heirloom quality.
