Capiz box - mermaid playing flute
This lovely square box features a pastel toned mermaid on a capiz shell box. Capiz shells are actually the outer shell of a marine mollusk called a "windowpane oyster", which is found only in the shallow coastal waters of the Philippine and Indonesian island chains. Layers of this shell form the top and bottom of this box with the image applied to the top. Measuring 3" x 3" x 1 1/8" deep, it is a great gift, mini jewelry box or container for another gift!
