Back side is also full of hand made carvings applied because originally this model had no doors but we had to improve it and put the lock to the bottom door too. Really accurate water based light ivory lacquer hand made by our Mr. Stefano and before the mat transparent final protection clock case has been fully “aquerello” hand painted by the artist Mrs. Lara as per a Giotto's picture.
