Size: Width 12cm X Depth 17cm X Height 10.5cm (5', 7', 4.5') This mother of pearl musical jewellery box has been produced through sophisticated lacquer work and inlaying mother of pearl by artisan with 100% manual work. Inlaying good quality mother of pearl followed by lacquerwork on jewellery boxes, furniture, crafts has been a well known speciality for centuries and remains luxury items until today. Lacquerware is produced by plastering hemp cloth on wooden objects and applying multi coats of lacquer mixed with charcoal powder and rice glue. When dry, the surface is ground smooth before it is carved and inlaid with pieces of shell (mother of pearl). After the first inlaying process completed, the surface is lacquered and ground repeatedly for smooth, lustrous surface.
