"Beautiful but Very Small"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love the look and feel of the box — it is beautifully crafted. It is however, way too small for my purpose in getting it. Granted the dimensions are given, but that sounded bigger, somehow, and the photo made it look bigger than it actually is. I would like this box — only about 3 times larger — then I could use it! Now I dont know what I am going to do with it. I may give it as a gift.

"A Very Beautiful Box"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This box is very beautiful. I would have given it 5 stars, but the one I received has a little silver colored metal hook in the very front that gives it a cheap look. Just a suggestion to the talented artist who made the box: a shiny gold colored or even a brass hook would have complimented this box beautifully, because the box is so rich and expensive looking. The box is comprised of attractive earth tones and then theres this little silver hook. It reminds me of those hooks you use to open and close a gate with. Im still glad I bought it, though, and would definitely buy again from this artist.
