Beautiful Thuya box decorated by Cumbrian based artist Maria Santos Alcantara. This box has a pewter veneer featuring a handsome Stag design and has a lift out tray for safe keeping of smaller items. Each box is individually signed by Maria, and would make a special gift which will surely become an heirloom.
Madrid born Maria uses a combination of enamels, veneers, semi-precious stones or glass in her work creating mirrors, boxes, photo frames and decorative panels. Much of the inspiration for her designs comes from the natural world and the flexibility of pewter enables her to recreate the beauty of nature in every small detail.
