Details

Grinning skeletons share a feast and a bottle of tequila as marigolds illuminate the scene. Ana Maria González celebrates the Day of the Dead with a colorful chest for personal treasures. In Mexico, the Day of the Dead is about celebrating the life of those who have passed away, rather than mourning their deaths. People visit graves with offerings, including altars such as the one depicted on one side of the jewelry box. It features a compartment beneath the lid and a drawer.

Part of NOVICA's Dia de los Muertos collection.

"Beautiful, small jewelry box celebrating the Dead"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I live close to the border with Mexico and have learned a lot about the culture since moving here decades ago. I always liked Halloween, but since becoming aware of the Day of the Dead I immediately took to it. I spend that day each year thinking about the people of significance in my life who are gone, and how one day I too will make that journey. I think the celebration is handled much, much differently in Mexico, but I am happy to have found this small momento to remind me of this important occasion every day. The craftsmanship is very well done. This is the second box I have purchased from this artist and I plan to add another soon. The compartments are not lined, but this can be added easily. Check dimensions so you are not disappointed with sizing. Also, note that the brightness of the colors can vary due to photography settings and computer monitor resolution.

"Day of the Dead"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Was disappointed to receive this item. The design was nice but the drawer, when closed, didnt align with the top. There was a noticeable space. Could fit a piece of cardboard to get it aligned but then you couldnt use the drawer and it looked tacky. Im a Day of the Dead collector and am saddened this was not the quality that Novica usually puts out. The picture doesnt show the drawer closed. The drawer is rather small as is the top.

"Beautiful little box"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Beautifully made box. I wanted a small box that I could place miscellaneous small items in at my desk and this works perfectly. The lid and drawer open and close easily, but the best part is every time I look at it I smile. Whats better than seeing a skeleton drinking a bottle of tequila. This is another artist that I plan on following.

"Colorful "Anywhere" Accessory Box For Jewelry, Etc"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Another "home run" for Ana Maria Gonzales in my book. This small box could be placed almost anywhere and used as a keep-safe for many things, but especially to corral stray jewelry bits and pieces. The interior is plain, stained pinewood, but a bit of cushioning felt could easily be added if desired. I adore the graphic: colorful, bright, happy, and amusing. As with all her boxes (I have five at present and three more on order) the execution is perfect. And I do mean flawless. This is a quality object. The lid fits exact and square, and is securely attached with two perfect brass hinges. The little drawer has a shiny, brass pull, well-secured. The edges of both the lid and the pedestal bottom are double-beveled, and finished in a burnished, antiqued gold. I love this little box--bought it for a gift, but couldn't give it away after it was in my hands.

The workmanship is exquisite and the finish is lovely! The box is unlined so you are free to line it yourself in velvet, satin or cotton, I am so happy with it!

"Tiny, cute box for Tea"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This little box for packets of tea is so very cute. I had thought it would have been larger but this size actually fit very well by the salt & peppers shakers so I like that. Now if someone wants tea I dont have to get on my stool to get the box of tea down. It is very well made also. Thank you.
