This is a completely unique piece- a book in appearance, this is actually a wood box which is wood-burned and hand-decorated. The "spine" opens into a drawer- perfect for jewelry, trinkets or any other keepsakes!
The front appears to be the classic fairy tale "Sleeping Beauty" originally published by Charles Perrault. Maleficent and the dragon loom menacingly over our heroine, plunged into an enchanted sleep. Pearl, gold and metallic yellow swirl about this image, bringing it to the level of "enchanted".
The back is particularly cool- it shows the enchanted castle, rags flying from its flagpoles, flanked and surrounded in deadly vines and thorns. How many Princes and Knights dared to cut through, never to be heard from again?
The spine features the title and author, and the enchanted, deadly spinning wheel. The whole thing is covered in a glossy protective finish.
This is an absolutely wonderful piece for any fan of literature, fairy tales, Sleeping Beauty, Charles Perrault and classic novels. Would make a great gift for yourself or for someone else!
Thanks for looking!
