This listing is for ONE Reliquary Box. Reclaimed pipe made into a dust free container. Unique storage for keepsakes. Shown within the group as well as a same sized box, this is the one that is more gray on the label than yellow on the right. (label is shown in photo) In group photo this is the tallest box on the right in back row.

Adobe Box, 2012
5.5" long 3 3/8" tall 2.5" wide

Lid made from old fire extinguisher labels and metal 'hooks' that I found at the scrap yard and cut into handles. This has got to be one of the most interesting pipes I've ever found! It was a shortish pipe and I only have a few fire labels left so I am only going to make a few more of these and then thats all she wrote folks! (they will be shorter than this one).

I hand pick only the coolest looking pipes....lug em home, cut them, clean them and prep the inside to prevent further rusting. I hand make an aluminum bottom which is cold welded and sanded to a smooth finish as well as the lid. Two coats of rust converter and two coats of varnish have been applied to the inside. (signed and dated on bottom)

SHIPPING: I combine shipping and refund you the difference via paypal after shipping. (or convo me prior to purchase your zip code for exact shipping charge) I estimate on shipping. If I overcharge on these by $1 you will get refunded via paypal. Combined shipping available. SHIP INTERNATIONALLY JUST ASK.

Frequently asked questions about PaulaArt

PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU LIVE IN ALASKA OR HAWAII prior to purchase as shipping may need to be edited on items that do not fit into flat rate/priority boxes. (failure to do so may end up in a cancelled order)

I refund overcharges regardless of the method used as calculated shipping is often a bit 'off' on multiple orders. Don't hesitate to ask what fedex rates are if you see something you really want but are aghast at estimates usps rates!
Keep in mind that just because many of my pieces are heavy metal, things can still break if dropped on the floor. I nut and bolt objects, epoxy them and weld. (even heat welded objects can break if hit just right) I take great care when shipping to protect your art through transit. I am not responsible for what happens to it after you get it! If a pet or child knocks something over and it crashes to the ground and breaks it does not reflect poor craftmanship on my end! Also, keep in mind that I am working with found materials that are aged and in many cases pretty rusted ~ if you leave them outside you can expect more rust over time due to humidity/wetness. If using indoors keep away from sink areas or where water is present.
If over time you notice any rust forming that doesn't bode well with you, GENTLY sand the area and spray or brush on an oil based varnish/polyurethane. Heavily rusted pieces,kitchen & jewelry holders are usually painted and/or varnished twice.
For orders returned to me because you do not like/want the item or failed to read listing details / didn't get quantity you thought you would or notice flaws in photos I will refund you once I have received the order in the same package/condition less shipping of original order. You are responsible for shipping fees back to me with a tracking #.

For orders returned to me because of failure to pick up package due to not wanting to pay duty/custom taxes (if applicable) or for any other reason such as incorrect address/outdated address etc, I will refund for the cost of the item less 15% and less original shipping fee that you paid. I can resend the item (in the states only) to the correct address if you want to pay for shipping again.
Wholesale buyers please convo me if you would like to discuss a bulk order as I offer discounts on orders incrementally.
