The art of traditional Indian wood craft requires mastery, passed on thru generations, to create the intricate carvings and refined finish. Artisans use hand tools to skillfully carve blocks of sustainably harvested mango wood into unique pivot boxes inspired by traditional antique Indian spice boxes. Handcrafted in north central India, the hand engraved cat design and white rub finish give this box the feel of an heirloom collected in the bustling spice markets of Delhi or Calcutta. The lid pivots open to reveal an open storage compartment. Elevated shabby chic decor to display in your own home or give as a gift to the antique lover in your life!
