Embossed star country boxesBy Mark Chervenka
Embossed star country boxes
There is a lot of new metal with a "country" look coming in from India. This set of round metal boxes with an embossed star is typical. Most pieces are thin lightweight steel painted a dull brown to simulate an aged "patina."
All the samples of new painted metal from India we've ordered have a strong smell of new paint. This may not be the most scientific way to detect the new products, but it works.
