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.

    For this price, I was expecting an elegant giftbox that I could use for a lovely bracelet I had purchased. My friend assumed it was a token child's gift and I had to agree. The bottom looks to be made of balsa wood and the item is very lightweight and flimsy.

    Comments about Peruvian Reverse-painted Butterfly Box:

    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.

      Comments about Peruvian Reverse-painted Butterfly Box:

      I bought this as a Christmas gift, now I have to rush to find something else. The painting on this box looks like it was done by a 3rd grader at best. You can even see the tracing lines through the paint. I'm upset that a class act like NG would promote a product like this, especially at this price! Suitable only to hold crayons for a small child.

          Purchased this for a Mother's Day gift. Thought it would be perfect for my mothers' dressing table. My mom loved it so much she displayed it on the dining room sideboard for more than a week so everyone could see it. A very memorable gift.

              This is far beyond the quality I had expected. The design and color/graphic choices are extraordinary. Every female who has seen it has asked where they can get one.
