Just about everyone needs a box to store pens, makeup, jewelry, art supplies, or other essentials. But even if you don't, you'll want one when it's as gorgeous as this foot-long box. Ornate reverse-painted glass makes up the sides and the hinged lid. The interior is lined, and the box rests atop petite ball feet. Handcrafted in Peru.
Robert M. Weiss home accessories share a luminous quality--the unique, Old World glow of verre églomisé, or reverse-painted glass. When the Spaniards settled in Peru in the 16th century, they brought many of their household items with them, including reverse-painted Venetian glass mirrors. In time, a core of Peruvian artisans began to recreate these masterpieces locally. Today, every Robert Weiss creation is handcrafted and painted in Peru by artisans who proudly carry on this tradition.
