I like this, but I would feel better about spending this amount of money only if the horoscope images were improved - I feel like the pictures should have more weight to them. They way the images are now, they sort of look like something from a coloring book.

I agree, the images are plain and boring.

Grace Gunnings' reliquary boxes are a unique product - and a perfect match for your catalog. I have several and think they are some of the most precious possessions I own. They are substantial, detailed and beautifully made using antique processes.

I know its copper and handmade, but I just couldn't justify spending that. And agree, the images could be a bit more exciting.

I have a few precious things, only a few. But this beautiful box would be perfect to hold them. I have purchased several of Grace's unique pieces to give as gifts.

I have never been disappointed by reliquary boxes. I am sure these photos do not do the work justice.

Grace's Reliquary Boxes are treasures -- to give or to keep. I have several of different designs. Beautiful. Priceless!

I love these boxes. I saw some in an exclusive Woodstock gallery a few months ago, and the photos here do not do justice to the artistry and craftsmanship. Truly one of a kind.

Kind of pricey, but it is handmade and unusual. Do the beads roll around or are they set in the spots that outline the constellation in the sky (which would be nice)? What are the dimensions? I love that it is made in USA.

These astrology boxes are made with Grace's particular attention to detail. I have several of her boxes and each is an elegant work of art. What are the dimensions of these boxes?

Really cute and original, and well crafted from the look of them, but I'd never buy them. TOO EXPENSIVE

These boxes are beautiful, handmade and the pictures do not capture the quality and beauty of these boxes. I would like to see better pictures. I suggest you list the dimension and weight that might help define the quality. There is attention to detail, to these hand made handcrafted,unique boxes. Museum quality art. I have never seen anyone else creating work like this.

These are exquisite works of art, and really inexpensive when you think of all the hours of detailed work and artistry that goes into them. They are among my most treasured possessions.

I really like the concept as an astrology enthusiast I could find 101 ways to use or gift these boxes. The price is steep though.

You folks who think handmade items should cost a couple bucks ought to make something yourself sometime. what's your time worth?

I have two boxes by this artist. They are well built to last several generations. Sure to be a collectors item and they are really fun to play with.
