Three layers of hand tooled saddle leather comprise the top of this exquisite, lidded box.  The top layer has hand-carved and stamped designs in a deep red finish.  Below that level is a sheet of black carved leather.  The bottom layer on the lid appears to be deep red leather with stamped designs around the border.

This layout is repeated on all four sides of the box with a deep red top cutout and stamped layer over a stamped black layer over the box foundation layer.  The bottom of the box is covered in a deep red layer of leather with a simple stamped design.  The interior of the box is fully covered in deep red leather.  

The origin of the box is unknown as there is no artist or origin noted on the interior or exterior.  It is a fascinatingly beautiful work of art.  It is one we had on display in our short-term rental on Garcia Street in Santa Fe.

Condition: this Hand Tooled Saddle Leather Exquisite Lidded Box is in excellent condition
