A message box is a greeting and a gift.

Each handmade box slides open to reveal a hidden message or treasure.

This message box is made with a Japanese bamboo paper, an antique coin I bought in Beijing, and bright orange silk ribbon. Inside is a quote from the Tang Dynasty:

Although my neighbors are all barbarians, and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups on my table

The quote is accompanied by two tiny metal teacups(about 1 cm. each). This message box comes with a tiny (quarter-sized) note card and envelope and is tucked inside an orange/navy blue/light green silk zippered bag. Light orange tassle on zipper.

2 5/16" x 1 5/16" x 13/16" (Note: This box is slightly larger than a matchbox)
