Moroccan Brass Applied Silver Koran Box
SOLD

Moroccan brass Koran box ca. 1960's, it has applied silver metal and bezel set stones which appear to be coral and lapis. There is a series of Arabic numbers on the back, which I believe to be a numerology formula. The same series of numbers is repeated on the curved lid. The brass and applied metal features profuse foliate etching. It has a braided strap, which may or may not be original. This unique box measure 5.5" across by 6" tall, and is 1.25" thick and weighs 1.5 pounds.
