Reminds me of two other boxes just like this, but smaller, that I bought at a museum in their gift shop many years ago. Those two are made of sandalwood and smell great!! Sort of spiritual. Those two had more intricate designed lids, but I think it is from this same family of artisans from India. Design/carving style is the same. This wood box is not made of sandalwood and does not smell as good as my other two. However, wooden box is much bigger. I was pleasantly surprised by its large size. This is a real, great product for the global economy. Good value. I would buy this product again, or would want to buy more similar boxes from this family from India. Solid design. I am so happy with my purchase!! Great job! I have not seen this product available for sale before. Winner!!!
I was thrilled to receive this item. I bought it for myself because I had been using a little candleholder for my loose earrings on the bathroom countertop and it got broken. This was a perfect replacement and is actually better because it has a hinged lid that shuts tightly to prevent spilling. It's small enough to not take up space and large enough to corral several jewelry items (rings, earrings, link bracelets) and it's pretty to look at. I love the mango wood. It's lightweight with a warm color and a slight sheen, so it looks nice and feels good in your hands. I would highly recommend this as a gift or for collecting small items.
