It is hand painted with bees on all 5 sides accented with a swirl floral motif. It is handcrafted bentwood with tacked and laced construction and retains the original patina and surface. It is oval shaped and has a nicely fitted lid.
We've not seen a box with bees previously; throughout history there is much symbolism in bees. The strength, industriousness, and wisdom of a bee in Christianity is about positive and sweet metaphors. The bee is also the symbol of activity, work, diligence, and good order. Dimensions: 15.25"L x 9.5"W x 6.25H.
