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.
