A vintage Middle Eastern and/or Ismic engraved copper tobacco box or cigarette box with white metal decorative inlay. The inside of the box is silvered (some of this is showing signs of wear) and the cover fits snugly. Apart from the inlay, the copper itself is engraved in various patterns and designs, which are a little difficult to show in the photographs (hatching, scrolling, stippling etc).
There are some minor dinks which we have endeavoured to show in the photographs. The box wobbles slightly on a flat surface but is otherwise stable enough.
The box stands approximately 4in high to the top of the slightly domed lid and the base measures just under 3in in diameter. Exact age unknown but believed to date from the earlier part of last century. Weighs over 300g.
