These are beautiful nicho boxes made of tin and mirrored glass. The color and composition of the pieces are exquisite. The inside of the box is decorated with small paper roses and gold twine, sepia paper and small artificial roses. The outer tin edges are made to look old. The images of the Virgen de Guadalupe are all in sepia tones. It can be hung or stand on a table or dresser. Really beautiful! They are mostly in pink tones with roses inside the box decorating the Virgin. The nicho box can be opened but why would you?
