Thai Lacquerware Boxes | Jewelry / Keepsake | Gold & Silver

A lovely collection of Artisan Thai Lacquerware boxes handmade in Chiang Mai, Thailand. 

The traditional techniques of lacquerware are passed down through generations using resinous sap tapped from a lacquer tree.  The designs are intricately engraved before finally applying gold leaf in a slow seven-step process of drying the layers and reapplying.  Each piece is a unique work of art that has taken weeks to complete.
