Mosaic Eggshell Box

Regular price $ 33.00

Lacquerware artisan Nantana Sompamitre of Thailand begins crafting this box with carved mango wood.  The wood is coated with lacquer then polished in a process that is repeated up to twenty times.  Eggshells are cleaned and broken into small pieces that she applies to the lacquered wood.  Several more coats of lacquer create a sealed finish and a final sanding and polishing make this intricately patterned box gleam.  Fantastic texture and easy earth tones make this box a standout on a mantel or bookshelf.

Approximately 3 1/4" Diam x 5" H
