  • Description

    Beautiful hand painting makes a delightful treasure box. In reverse glass painting, the design is silk screened onto the back or reverse side of the glass. The painting is done “back to front”: details painted first, then larger color areas, and finally a background color. Reverse painting requires great care and skill, as the visual “surface” is painted first then layered over, so errors cannot be corrected. Reverse painting has an ancient history going back to the Middle Ages.

  • Beautiful!

    . . . . .

    I purchased a number of these boxes for corporate holiday presents (filling each with a selection of fair-trade teas to complete the gift). I was very happy with the appearance and quality of each. I thought they were so beautiful that I couldn't bear to wrap them (I know I wouldn't find any wrapping paper that would be prettier!). So, I simply put a sparkly green ribbon and bow around each.
    I will say that my boss initially said that he thought they were not a good value for the price. However, I suspect that he is probably more accustomed to purchasing the kind of gifts sold at the mall or discount stores (a cheaper price for a lesser quality). For anyone who values fair-trade, artisan-produced gifts this is a good value and beautiful item.
