Peruvian Reverse-painted Butterfly Box
Peruvian Reverse-painted Butterfly Box
(Based on 12 reviews)
Category: Home & Garden/Home Décor/Home Accents

The art of reverse painting on glass was brought to Peru by settling Spaniards in the 15th century. Local artisans emulated the style found on mirrors and other Spanish household objects and, in time, added so much of their own inspiration that the technique became recognized as a Peruvian craft tradition. There are a dwindling number of Peruvian artists who still practice this unique and romantic art. Here the artisan captures the ethereal beauty of butterflies on the hinged lid of a handcrafted wooden jewelry box.

The Peruvian sculptor who creates this diminutive pair of owls says he selects the stones that speak to him when choosing raw materials to work with. In this sculpture he works with serpentine, white onyx, aragonite, rose quartz, and sodalite, and follows the stone’s natural contours and grains. Please accept some variation in each hand-carved piece.

(Based on 4 reviews)
Category: Home Décor/Home Accents

Popular during the Spanish colonial era in Peru, the art of reverse-glass painting dwindled until local artisans rediscovered it in the 1960s. Designs are painted on the back of glass—first the details and outlines, then highlights, then the background. Glass panels decorated with swirling floral motifs adorn this petite gold-painted wooden jewelry box.

Peruvian Reverse-painted Glass Tray
Peruvian Reverse-painted Glass Tray
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Home Décor/Home Accents

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.
