Celtic knot with butterfly, blue box, one of a kind, hand painted


The item:
A hand painted light blue box used for jewelry, trinkets or keepsakes or anything your heart desires. It features a Celtic knot border and a butterfly in the center. Please look at all of the pictures to see what the box looks like on all sides (some pictures have my copyright watermark for online display purposes only, but I assure you that the watermark is not on the actual product/art).

Please note: this is a HAND PAINTED one of a kind box and you are buying directly from the artist. It does not feature decals. It is also not a decoupage box where layers of paper can peel off of the box. Everything is very painstakingly painted with my own hands.

Here are the specifics:
* it is painted on all sides with two layers of gesso, and several layers (including the inside) with acrylic paints
* my signature on the bottom is also painted in acrylic paints
* it has a non-yellowing polyurethane coating on all sides, including the inside so that it can be wiped down if it gets dusty or dirty. Please avoid any vigorous washing.
* the dimensions of the box are 7" in width, 4.5" in length, and 4.5" tall (i.e. 17.78 cm in width, 11.43 cm in height and 11.43 cm tall)
* the art design is my own original design using some traditional elements
* the box is made of pine and birch
* the lid features a little clasp, and fits snugly to the base
* it is mailed in a sturdy box with insurance and delivery confirmation
* not recommended for placement in direct sunlight, outside conditions

I will reimburse for all over-charges on shipping and shipping supplies, so please be aware that this listing is an estimated shipping charge only.

All shipments are carefully packed in a smoke free environment.

I use USPS for most packages. Some 3-D work will be sent Fed Ex or UPS. All breakable items will be sent double boxed with multiple layers of protective bubble wrap and styrofoam peanuts.

I ship Monday through Thursday. In some cases, I can also send packages on weekends (please contact me if this is of concern).

I will not re-imburse for "lost" packages, however, I will gladly replace it with an item at the same value or less. I try to insure most packages, so it is imperative that you tell me as soon as possible if your item does go missing. Some overseas shipments can get stuck in customs for a month and I will not consider your package lost until a month has gone by.
