    Beautifully carved! Only complaint is the box is not totally level. It wobbles a bit unless I put something under one corner.

    Perfect in everyway

    The jewelry box is exquisite! I will cherish it forever! Even the packaging was perfect. I wanted something decorative to hold my sewing notions. Somehow it should have a grander use.

    This was absolutely beautiful! It was well tooled, well crafted, and the wood has a beautiful grain that doesn't show well in the picture. In other words, the photo doesn't do it justice. The only detractor is the lock which is a bit dinky but it works. The person who made this is skilled and meticulous. Bravo!
