Looks like a beautifully finished and detailed wooden box from Poland (which it is), but there's more than meets the eye! This box won't open if you don't know the trick. Rotating feet unlock the box. Interior has a red felt lined bottom.
This beautiful box is made of seasoned Linden wood, from the Tatra Mountain region of Poland. The skilled artisans of this region employ centuries old traditions and meticulous handcraftmanship to create a finished product of uncompromising quality. The use of feathered corner joints and raised interior lining ensure its enduring value as a lasting keepsake. These boxes are entirely decorated by hand, using various combinations of carving, brass and copper inlays, burning, and staining techniques.
Once bestowed upon royal families throughout Europe as an elegant and exclusive gift, these boxes were used to hold timeless treasures. Then as now, each box is entirely handcrafted, is a unique masterpiece, and is exclusive in its detail and individual character. The Tatra Mountain lore adds a mystique to each box, that combines with the premier craftsmanship to bring years of pleasure to the owner.
