Do You Feel Lucky?

Hold all your lucky charms in this mesmerizing and engaging copper horseshoe box. Under the glass lid, a gold horseshoe, dice, and various clear and cream-colored glass balls float on a sea of tiny silver pellets. Creating a lovely ebb and flow of shimmer. The juxtaposition of tough, polished copper with the graceful scene under the glass make this a gift that will be treasured and loved. A creation of New York artist Grace Gunning, the copper reliquary box is made using hand-run, 19th century machines and is velvet lined to hold jewelry, watches, special coins, and other small objects.

    I received this reliquary box as a birthday gift from my brother, and it is wonderful! It is a tiny bit small for a reliquary box, but the design is beautiful. The glass beads of various sizes make it very unique and charming.

    Comments about HORSESHOE RELIQUARY BOX:

    My husband got this for me for Christmas, and I must admit to hinting strongly that I wanted it. Neither of us paid enough attention to the dimensions in the description, and so we were surprised by how small this box is. It is most assuredly beautiful, so much so that our eight-year-old has already called dibs on it after my death. Nice. Anyway, I am overall pleased with this, and I'm using it to store my most special jewelry, but for the price, I definitely expected something bigger.

    I bought this for a friend, but had it delivered to my home. I opened to see what it looked liked - [...] and was impressed by the design but also surprised by the size. It will make a great gift for my friend who is a horse person and a great holder for another gift I'm giving her.

      Comments about HORSESHOE RELIQUARY BOX:

      PAY ATTENTION TO THE DIMENSIONS IN THE DESCRIPTION! The box is very unique and very attractive, and appears to be good quality in that it is very heavy, but I was dismayed to see how very tiny it is in person. Unfortunately, while nice, it did not merit the [$] price tag.

          This is a great choice for a "change of pace" sort of gift. Striking design, and a great durable feel to it.

            Comments about HORSESHOE RELIQUARY BOX:

            I purchased this as a going-away/good luck gift for my brother and sister-n-law. I read the dimensions, so I knew it was tiny. It's absolutely beautiful and very unique; they loved it.Note that (and I think maybe one of the other reviews mentions this) the picture is a bit deceiving. The one I received only had small clear beads of various sizes and a gold horseshoe. I actually liked the one I received much better than the one in the photo,[...]. I think the one we purchased is much more tasteful.

                    The image on UncommonGoods' website is not the product that you'll receive. Instead of pearls under the glass with the horseshoe, there are colored dice. I gave this as a gift and was shocked to see that instead of the classy box that was pictured on the website, it had dice in it and looked very tacky. It is a great product if that is what you are looking for, but I wasn't looking for dice.

                      I purchased this box for my mother for mother's day. It is perfect as a gift box to hold jewelry- at least that is what I am going to do with it. Maybe a little expensive for the size but it is nicely made and quite pretty.
