"Beautiful and useful"

I collect EdmundContreras's mirrors, but this is the first of his boxes.I ordered it for a special purpose--for me chopstick collection. It sits on my coffee table next in a room decorated by three of his mirrors and his burgundy clock, In a rather eclectic decorating style, it is unusual for visitors to inquire about any single item, but this one is an attention-getter. I like the fact that every visible surface displays a beautiful scene.

I gifted this beautiful box and I was immediately elevated to star status. It was so well packaged, and was as beautiful in person as on the website. I didn't open it before gifting but I wasn't disappointed. Novica artist do quality work!


Mr. Contreras, I was so very, very pleased to purchase this beautiful, reverse glass mirror. This design is lovely with a mixture of flowers and butterflies. Your hand painting truly shows all your talents and you are blessed.
