My first mini for Etsy

I made my first mini for my future etsy shop. According to my plan my debut will be in september. This is a hope chest with a little box on the left side of the chest for jewelry, credentials or other tiny things . The flower pattern on the front is typical in hungarian ornamental folk art. The date on the inside top indicates the date of the owner's wedding. Size: 9,5 x 4,5 x 5,5 cm. I looked at dozens of photos of original antique chest on the database of the Museum of Ethnography, examining the structures, measures, ratios, colors and all the details, then made up my own design for a hope chest. A varnish layer is still missing, and I would like to make a little key into the keyhole.
