This Victorian inspired Butterfly design is hand carved into beveled glass and then inset with 40 or more European multi faceted glass jewels. Many dating back to the early 1900's. The bevel design is then surrounded by leaded glass and extensive hand worked metal beading, bringing to mind the great detail of world famous Faberge eggs and uses many of the same techniques. The unique shape of the lid is our own design. It is raised with angled sides. This not only enhances light reflection,it also makes it much more durable by dispersing pressure and strengthening the hinge. The colored lid is attached to a base made of hand cut beveled sides and a mirrored bottom. This clear base allows light to enter from any direction. The mirror bottom illuminates the beauty of all objects placed within it and will also illuminate the colored lid. The box looks like it has been lighted from within and direct sunlight creates a beautiful prism rainbow effect. Heirloom quality and signed by the artist. A completely unique treasure box designed to last a lifetime. Size 3"x 4"x 3"
