"I LOVE this chest, but..."

The hinge is not working properly -- my husband will try to repair the cracked wood as the chest is absolutely gorgeous!

"Stunning leather and cedar chest"

The workmanship on this chest is beautiful. This craftsman clearly takes pride in his work. Even the inside finish is satin smooth to the touch. I had been wanting a chest of this type for many years to replace one that I used to have. I just stumbled upon Novica in one of my many web searches. The ordering process was simple and I received the chest in a timely manner. I would highly recommend this company to others.

"Unsurpassed Craftsmanship"

Beautifully finished and detailed small wood and leather chest, most apt for use as a jewelry box. The leather is finely embossed with Inca symbols. I was also surprised that it was larger than it appeared in the picture. This is true craftsmanship and quality. Recommend this artisan and his products highly!
