Another sweet box from Poland, featuring some very traditional designs and techniques. Artisans in the Tatra Mountains have been carving wood for over a thousand years, using the natural world around them for design inspiration. This carved wooden box, stained a beautiful red and unfinished inside, features flowers and leaves in gorgeous colors, highlighting the characteristic Polish carving techniques that people have come to love.
The brass wire inlaid into the design is a technique that was only introduced into Polish box making in the 1940's, but has been so well developed that it has become an integral part of many artisans' designs. This keepsake box has a lid that lifts off effortlessly, making it easy to get at the treasures (or hair ties, or car keys) inside.
