The lion is the king of the jungle, and this beautiful keepsake box is a gift fit for a king. The lion is gold-plated withe 24-carat gold. The lion features a hand-enameled crown which is adorned with Austrian crystals. The lion also has two red Austrian crystals for eyes. Very ferocious indeed! The box opens and closes with the help of a magnetic clasp. The strong magnet is very simple to open, but it closes very tightly. This lion comes in a satin lined gift box, and would make a great present for any occasion. It is also a great, and unique, piece of home decor; perfect for holding smaller pieces of jewelry, or little nick-nacks.
