Details

A box fit for all your treasures. Gelacio Giron decorates this jewelry box with intricate floral designs hand-painted over pieces of glass in deep blue and gold. He mounts the glass parts over gold-painted wood to shape the box, two functioning drawers, and a lidded secret compartment on top.

The Andean artisan fell into the art of reverse-glass painting through an uncle after losing his job as a government accountant. This technique was born in Europe during the Middle Ages and later on spread to Asia, Africa, and the Americas. It's come to hold a special place in Peruvian folk arts after being revived in the 1960s and has evolved to accommodate multiple regional styles.

"Beautiful mirror"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This mirror is gorgeous! The teal is so vibrant and just beautiful along with the painted birds and gold trim. I really like that the mirror is arched at the top. On the back there is a hook for hanging. This is truly a very special piece of beautiful workmanship. Your workmanship is excellent. Thank you so very much.
