"Beautiful"

This rack is shown off as a lovely piece of art - has a few magazines in it, but thats not its main function. Has a very viewable place in the den and is enjoyed by all.

"If I could have only one jewelry box..."

I collect jewelry boxes and had several times more capacity than I do jewelry to store in them. However if I had to pare down my collection to one item, it would be this one. Even if I had to pare it down to only the boxes whose space I actually need, this one would be a viable contender against the option of keeping multiple boxes, especially if space was a concern.Each drawer is capacious and the shallow but ample storage in each compartment means that it would be very easy to find things. Its also very pretty, even as someone who doesnt usually go for green as a decor choice, apart from plants.The colors dont pop as much in natural light as they do in pictures, but the engravings are still really nice.

"Sent to my great-niece for HS graduation."

This is the note I received from my sister, (her grandmother.)...Haylee LOVED the leather embossed jewelry box! LOVED IT. Went on and on about it. Read the note, the postcard, the description. And it was extremely well packaged. Took a few minutes to get into it! Lol. We were both amazed by the craftsmanship. She will be sending out notes but I wanted to let you know how well it was appreciated.

"A beautiful piece of artwork!"

I was looking for a unique piece to have beside my leather chair where I read and do needlepoint. Something nice that I could put my things in so the end table wouldnt be so cluttered. It is in the main living area of my home and visible to company. This is the perfect thing and Im proud to show it off! It is a generous size but not awkwardly large. The colors are vibrant without being too much. The carvings are amazing and sharp. You can tell that it is a good quality piece that was made by a true craftsman. I am so very pleased with it! Highly recommended!
