Details

Intricate inlay work has been practiced in the Middle East for more than 4,500 years. This beechwood box is inlaid with hundreds of hand-cut pieces of iridescent mother-of-pearl, and re-creates an arabesque design from the seventh century. Lined with velvet, it makes an excellent jewelry box or striking desk accessory.

"beautiful inlaid wood, but..."

The shellacking is of poor quality with the brushstrokes clearly seen. I al also concerned that the shellac might yellow in time.

"It?s very precious ! "

It?s very artistically inlaid outside with mother-of -pearl pieces & lined inside with a beautiful velvet material! It?s a little small to hold standard business cards here but can be a jewelry box for small rings, earrings or pendents or chains etc. it?s so pretty, may be a decorative objective all by itself ! Love it so much , bought a second one ! Thank you National Geographic , thank you artisans from Cairo & thank you Novica for offering this item to public !??
