Hand Carved Floral Wood Box
Beautiful, hand-carved floral Indian Rosewood box, perfect for storing incense, herbs, crystals or jewelry. Top has intricately carved flowers with a brass leaf/flower inlay.
Sheesham, also known as Indian Rosewood, is a deciduous tree native to the Indian sub-continent. The wood is known for its rich color, natural grains, strength, density and durability. It is stronger than teak, but more readily available in India. It has a smooth surface that finishes beautifully and is ideal for intricate carving.
It reminds me of hand carved boxes I would see when I lived in India
