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.


Handmade in Peru. Approximately 7 1/2"W x 2"H x 6"D.

I was really looking forward to receiving this box that I have had my eye on for a couple of years. It was meant for my mother, who loves butterflies. However, I was very disappointed because the painting of the main butterfly on top is unfinished. The royal blue as well as the green weren't finished to match the left wing, making it look unbalanced, unlike real butterfly wings. Sadly, I am sending it back as it is definitely not worth the money I paid for it. I just wish I could attach a photo for reference.

    Comments about Peruvian Reverse-painted Butterfly Box:

    My dad just passed away. My friend gave me some money to buy a remembrance gift for the occasion. I chose the butterfly box to signify that we are all butterflies, and are free to fly away.

        The catalog looked like the box would be wood grain but it was actually a gold paint. I am returning this item as I don't believe the person I was going to gift this to will like it because of the gold paint.

        Ordered 2. Gave as a gift to a 62 year old and an 11 yr old. Both loved it. I was worried about it being shipped as art work looked fragile but they both arrived just fine. Very beautiful cover, whole box very sturdy and well made. Great gift at an acceptable price. Now getting one for myself.

          My daughter-in-law is originally from Peru but has lived in Brazil for many years. She was thrilled w/ the box, says the artistry is impeccable. She loves shiny gold things & butterflies, so this was a perfect choice. I'm sure she would give it a 5 star rating.

            National Geographic has earned my respect in their quest to provide high quality, unique gifts that give back in so very many ways, specially hand-crafted presents that extol the many cultural beneficences on the planet.

                This was a birthday gift for a 11 year old Granddaughter and she loves it. I adorned it with some heart-shaped pierced earrings. I picture her putting her little earrings in the box or other small treasures known to pre-teens! Beautifully made and especially memorable because it was handmade. Many thanks.

                This beautiful box is a birthday gift. It will be used as a jewelry box. The box itself is a "jewel". I am so glad that I have a choice to purchase such a beautiful gift at a reasonable price that is NOT factory made. In the future I will have to purchase one for myself. This gift is for my sister whose birthday is in May. She will be thrilled.
