Lovingly hand crafted, this 19th century enameled box was made in Esfahan. (Isfahan) Persia (Iran) using a Cuerda Seca style of enamelling.
There are some minor enamel losses, but considering the size of the inlays, it's age, and the fact that this was made to be used as a jewelry box, it has survived remarkably well. There are some minor enamel losses on the front corner of the box, and the clasp part of the hinge is missing, otherwise this is in excellent condition.

Measuring 5.25" (13.33cm) by 3.25" (8.25cm) by 2.75" inches (7cm), and weighing over a pound (.5 kilo), this piece is quite solid. This piece is estimated to be 100-150 years old
