Intricate inlay work has been practiced in the Middle East for more than 4,500 years. These beech-wood boxes are inlaid with hundreds of hand-cut pieces of iridescent mother-of-pearl and re-create an arabesque design from the seventh century. Lined with red velvet, they make excellent jewelry boxes or striking desk accessories. Handmade in Egypt.


Please note: We’re sorry, due to recently tightened restrictions on the import and export of mother of pearl, we are not able to ship the Egyptian Mother-of-pearl Inlaid Boxes outside of the U.S.

      The small box is very small. It was could hold a few rings, some earrings or a chain necklace. It is gorgeous though and I would still recommend it to others.

      By 1800, New England was the center of the world's whaling industry. Sailors spent long months at sea, and one of the ways they passed the time was creating scrimshaw—etched bones or tusks that were blackened with soot or tobacco to highlight the design. This contemporary scrimshaw box is made of water buffalo bone and reproduces a design that a sailor may have made for his sweetheart at home.

      (Based on 12 reviews)
      Category: Home & Garden/Home Décor/Home Accents

      The art of reverse painting on glass was brought to Peru by settling Spaniards in the 15th century. Local artisans emulated the style found on mirrors and other Spanish household objects and, in time, added so much of their own inspiration that the technique became recognized as a Peruvian craft tradition. There are a dwindling number of Peruvian artists who still practice this unique and romantic art. Here the artisan captures the ethereal beauty of butterflies on the hinged lid of a handcrafted wooden jewelry box.

      Popular during the Spanish colonial era in Peru, the art of reverse-glass painting dwindled until local artisans rediscovered it in the 1960s. Designs are painted on the back of glass—first the details and outlines, then highlights, then the background. Glass panels decorated with swirling floral motifs adorn this petite gold-painted wooden jewelry box.
