The main body and lid on this box were cast, the hinges and holders were handmade. The lid and part of the next are deeply cross etched so the box can be grasped for opening. The body of one side is etched with a six pointed star and surrounded by geometric designs. The other side of the body is etched with symbols of trees. The base is etched with flowing stars. The sides have hinged holders so the piece could be hung around the neck. Pieces like this were worn around the neck and contained fragrance. The designs are classic to the 17th early 18th centuries during the Ottoman Empire. The wonderful thick patina attests to the age of the box. The box is in great condition for its age. There is a slight dent in one part of the body. The lid opens and closes easily and the hinged holds move freely. These early boxes with such ornate design are rarely seen. This is a great old example. Dimensions: Height 2 inches (5.08 cm), Width 2 1/8 inches (5.4 cm), Depth 1 1/8 inches (2.86 cm).
