Before any images can be applied up to 16 coats of lacquer are applied to the box. Over a series of weeks each area where a specific colour is required is carved, by hand. As each colour is carved the Village Scene slowly becomes apparent. Completion of the box will take over 2 months.

Unusually for lacquerware the base colour of this box is grey making each piece intrinsically different. As each box is hand carved it is also completely unique.

Larger sizes of this box, with a similar design are also available.

Material: Lacquerware Dimensions (HxWxD): 9cm x 30cm x 21cm
