"What a beautiful box!"

Carved elephants going around a round box! What more could I ask? The carving is skillfully done and the box and lid are sturdy. It's absolutely gorgeous! It was well packed and quickly shipped and got to me faster than I expected.

"This will be a most welcome Christmas gift"

I ordered this for next Christmas for an elephant loving friend, and from the ratings of this artist for others, have every confidence that it will become a treasured item in their home. I have never been disappointed with anything I ordered from a Novica seller, and now have many things I don't need, but love! This at least is a useful item, and it is so beautifully gift-wrapped that I didn't want to open it just to write a review, when I was convinced that was unnecessary!
