As with all of my purchases from Ana Maria Gonzales, this large, decorative box, really more of a casket or treasure box, is perfectly designed and crafted, eye-catching--totally charming. What's more, it's just plain fun. The graphic is colorful, joyous, and entertaining. I still don't think I've absorbed every detail. The domed lid is secured with a long interior hinge and supported by a chain at either end to prevent any damage to the hinge in the open position--very thoughtful. The picture doesn't do it justice, and I love my box so much that I recently purchased a second. The first box is full of aromatherapy supplies--plenty of room for 4 oz. glass bottles of essential oils, and I'll have no problem finding a use for the second box in a different room. This will arrive, as all my purchases from Ana Maria, in very heavy Mexican shipping cardboard boxes, double packed and extremely well-secured. I've never experienced any damaged to any order, or even the box my order shipped in.
