The Old Bazaar
|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.|
