A celestial blue cloud embraces this classic jewelry box, designed like a chest of drawers. The upper tray features a mirror, and the two drawers below organize personal treasures. Asunta Pelaez hand-paints the motifs on the reverse side of glass panes with details in gilt.
About the Artist: Asunta Pelaez tells her story: 'At first my I husband's family taught me, then we united our skills and labor. I realized that the more I practiced, the more this craft won me over, offering me tremendous gratification. Now I consider it a way of life. This whole process demands incredible patience and attention to detail. My designs are inspired by nature, and by traditional scenes from my town and region. I feel very proud of the works that I create.'
