Lacquered Hemp Cloth Wood Jewelry Box with Mother of Pearl Peony
 
Unlike other lacquered wood jewelry box, this one was created by traditional technique in which hemp cloth is laid upon the wood frame of the box called "skeleton" before repeated applying of natural lacquer. After lacquering, delicately designed mother of pearl pieces are individually inlaid by the artist. The specially handcrafted yin yang design knob made of cupro-nickel adds beautiful panache to this unique jewelry box. The elaborate adornment with the iridescence of intricate mother of pearl designs makes it an impressive item for collection.

The two story structure inside of the box offers a pleasant way for storing valuable personal ornaments. The fully open peony blossom is traditionally a symbol of wealth and nobility.
