In reverse-painted glass, the details of a design are applied first, followed by highlights, then backgrounds. When viewed from the opposite side, the effect is a rich and layered design. Conquering Spaniards brought the technique to the New World in the 15th century, where Peruvian artisans adapted it and made it a national art form. This divided tray is a perfect catchall for a hall table or vanity.


Handcrafted in Peru. 13 3/4"W x 5 1/2"L x 1"H.

Here the artisan captures the ethereal beauty of butterflies on the hinged lid of a handcrafted wooden jewelry box.
