Genuine gold leaf is used in the intricately patterned, hand-etched designs, making this accent piece perfect for placement in your bedroom, living room, on a side table or in a display case.

Each piece receives a seven-layer coat of lacquer to ensure a high standard of quality and undergoes a 2-month drying process to achieve a rich luster. Natural color pigments are used in the hand-painted designs. Measures 6 inches wide x 4 inches long x 2.5 inches high. AsiaEXP brings you authentic handcrafted goods from a variety of world cultures.
