Very nice small handcrafted antique 19th century Koran box made of a silver bronze (or brass?) material with black niello enamel and applied metal decoration and gold overlay. The lid is hinged at the top – the hinge pin has corroded and needs to be replaced. Measures about 2-3/4 x 1-7/8 x 3/8 inches. Definitely from the Middle-East and possibly Persian in origin. Great old piece
