"Beautiful Box"

This is a beautiful that I am going to keep for myself. I have ordered some reverse painted items before and have given them as gifts but this one I am keeping. It is a beautiful and skilled piece of workmanship. The butter-flies are so colorful, the golden trim is expertly painted and it is just very pretty. Thank you.

"This was a Christmas gift to a good friend who cherishes this box"

This box was exquisite. We were pleasantly surprised at the detail of those butterflies and the colors, in this case, complemented my friends bedroom in her new house. She was excited to put this box on her dresser and said it will be a keepsake for her granddaughter. Thanks to the artist and Novica for giving us the possibility of finding those very special items which would otherwise be unknown to us.

Asunta uses the traditional Peruvian technique of reverse-painted glass. Brought to Peru during the colonial period, every detail is done by hand, requiring great skill and patience.
