It's a beautiful box and you are very lucky to have it. I have several things my dad and mom made before they passed and I will always treasure them. I prefer hand made to store bought anyway, but items like yours are extra special.

A beautiful box! My great grandmother (from Friesland) carved a wooden box with similar patterns, that is still in our family. Such treasures!
