This jewellery box is a work of art. It is handmade and hand-painted in a crackle glaze with two interwoven and gorgeous gypsy-like floral designs in a traditional mehendi style paintwork (textured or raised paint inspired by henna body art) making it so tactile, that you just can’t help, but stroke it. The area of India where this stunning box is hand- painted, is renowned for woodwork and painting expertise. The artisans use traditional skills that have been passed down through the generations, and this particular manufacturer employs nearly forty people. Some are able to work from home so that they can continue their family duties and earn a wage. All staff receive benefits in addition to their statutory wages and the company runs social programmes that benefit the local community. The top of the box lifts up with a small brass knob to reveal a striking deep red and contrasting floral design, plus a traditionally-shaped and decorative framed mirror. The drawer has four softly-lined compartments to separate and protect your precious jewellery, and opens with a smaller, round brass knob. A simply beautiful finishing touch to any room.
