Category: Home & Garden/Home Décor/Home Accents

By 1800, New England was the center of the world's whaling industry. Sailors spent long months at sea, and one of the ways they passed the time was creating scrimshaw—etched bones or tusks that were blackened with soot or tobacco to highlight the design. This contemporary scrimshaw box is made of water buffalo bone and reproduces a design that a sailor may have made for his sweetheart at home.

Cloisonné Teapot Ornaments - Set of 4

Category: Home & Garden/Home Décor/Home Accents

Cloisonné was developed thousands of years ago during the Byzantine era and traveled via the Silk Road to China, where it has flourished as an art form ever since. To create a design in cloisonné, an artist's original sketch must be traced using thin strips of wire. Into this wire "scaffolding" is inserted powdered enamel that, when baked, fills the outlines and creates a porcelain-like appearance.

Peruvian Reverse-painted Butterfly Box
Peruvian Reverse-painted Butterfly Box
(Based on 11 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.

(Based on 4 reviews)

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.
