This vintage rosewood cedar chest is inlaid with rosewood and camelbone , and accented with embossed silver metal and coral, has a wonderful rustic charm to it. This was likely made in the 1970's. Found throughout the Islamic world, this chest is unusually large This amazing vintage box measures 20" long by 12" deep, by 13" high, and weighs approximately 24 pounds before packing. The bone pieces fit well together, and are well matched. There are a few hairline cracks in the bone consistent with a piece this age.
