Mixed media holy shrine art box features a 4 1/2" tall vintage ceramic bisque angel and a segment of a rosary with rich red plastic beads, metal crucifix and chain. On top of the box a lovely synthetic red-violet flower and two smaller ones hiding behind it sit upon a segment of hand-colored paper doily that drapes down the sides. The front vertical box edges are finished in deep red cloth ribbon.

Background is an interior view of the Cologne Cathedral, France, and is a photographic reproduction of a photogravure plate from an antique book I own, Great Cathedrals of the World, published 1863.

I removed the original (new) cigar box top and all paper, sanded it and painted it semi-glossy black. Top and bottom front edges are unfinished other than being sanded and painted. If you look very closely you can see there is a small bit of the middle layers of wood missing from the middle of the bottom. This is the original condition of the box, and it is neither obvious nor does it detract from the loveliness of the box.

This sweetly spiritual art box measures approximately 9 1/2" tall, 6" wide, 3" deep.

Original box top, not shown, does not come with the shrine.

Price includes insurance.
