A beautiful vintage/antique Persian wooden box designed to house writing utensils, jewelry or trinkets. The top of the box is an original hand-painted miniature painting of three gentlemen playing polo (Chogan) while the body and drawer of the box is marquetry, also known as Khatam. This one in particular is somewhat unusual in that it contains marquetry on the underside AND on the inner insides of the sliding drawer; rarely does the maker go through with this level of finesse. Both pieces were signed by the artist, which is also uncommon.

Box measures 8" by 1⅝" wide by 1¼" high.

Khātam is a Persian version of marquetry (art forms made by decorating the surface of wooden articles with delicate pieces of wood, bone and metal precisely-cut geometrical shapes).

Condition: Excellent, like-new - stunning vivid colours and unmarred lacquer. No obvious scratches, no peeling or missing pieces of the marquet inlay anywhere. Measures 8" by 1⅝" wide by 1¼" high.
