What is paper mache ?
Papier-mâché is the French word for "chewed paper", which in standard English refers to objects made by molding paper pulp in various shapes. The discarded newspapers and other paper is turned into pulp and is then dried and smoothed for painting by hand using fine brushes and safe paints. In the cold days of winter ,thousands of little painted products may be laid out before gas heaters to dry in the frigid air each one a testimony to the skills of the artists.💓

I ordered a few of these boxes they are each like a work of art. Exquisitely made and painted perfection.
I'm in the USA and shipping was easy and inexpensive. I can't decide what to keep for myself and what to give as a gift.
Might just have to order more....
