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.

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.
