An Antique Islamic/ ArabicApothecary Box With Hand Painted Decoration Which Has Been Lacquered Over. Just Visible Are Some Delicate Marquetry Work In The Form Of Small Stars.

The Box Appears To Be Very Old As It Shows Evidence Of Being 'Improved' Whenever It Showed Signs Of Wear And Tear; With Gesso Being Used In Places As A Filler, And Then Over Painted In A Muted Earthy Colour Palette, Which Is Visually Pleasing In Its Subtleness'.

Measures: 12.5 Inches x 8 Inches In Widthx 6Inches In Height.

When I Was Given This As A Gift In The 1970's From A Friend Working In One Of The Arab Countries In The Middle East, Formally Known As Persia. Originally It Was Full Of Small Pottery Jars For Herbal Compounds, And All Had Arabic Script Upon Them........However, These Are Now Since Lost.

Appears To Be Made From A Soft Wood Of The Same Type As Pine Possibly.

The Box In Good Order, Although The Key Is Missing It Closes Okay. The Pictures Illustrate The Normal Wear From Use. It's Still A Practical Item To Use Or Simply Admire....................Commences At A Bargain 99p Start Price!
