Antique Persian Solid Brass and Cedar Lined Box, circa 1920s, Persia


A beautiful antique Persian brass box decorated with ornate engraved designs showing a multitude of flora and fauna in elegant repeating patterns. The cedar lined box may have been designed as a tabletop cigarette box due to its wide, low design with two compartments, were the middle part can be taken out and the box can be used for any purpose. The box is in excellent condition no major dents, the wood is intact and the hinges work perfectly, a stunning piece of artisanal hand work.
