Rare Museum Quality Antique Persian Qajar Papier Mache Case + Bone Comb C1830's For Sale

For sale is this extremely rare antique Persian papier mache box. It comes complete with a breathtaking rare handmade bone comb. It also comes with a watercolour painting of a Qajar King which looks like Mozaffar Al din shah.


The papier mache box has been hand painted on both sides with a scene of a young lady. I believe the item dates from the early 1800's. The comb has been beautifully handmade to perfection - very fine quality.

However the aspect that makes this such a rare and collectible item is the letter inside. It is from a man writing to his wife / girlfriend. It is dated may 1900.

The writer explains that he is sending various gifts to his partner and included is this comb. He explains that the normal people have wooden combs and only higher members of society have these bone combs.


This is one of the most unusual and rarest papier mache items I have ever come across. This isdefinitelyone of the most collectible items I have sold on . It comes with the comb and the original letter.
