Details

Several years ago I bought several pieces of vintage and antique artifacts from Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. - some are refined and quite elegant and others are wonderful and rich examples of tribal art. Many of these pieces I incorporated into my jewelry. I can't possibly use them all so the time has come to share some these finds.

This is a beautiful antique prayer box from Afghanistan. Originally these pieces contained written prayers. The front has a lovely stamped floral pattern with a small centerpiece of coral. Silver charms dangle from two chains on the right side; the left side of the box has an attached lid which is so tightly fitted that I have not tried to remove it (and would not recommend it). It has developed a lovely, rich patina over the years.

I would estimate that it was made in the late 19th century to early 20th century. It measures 3" across and 3" high including the three bales. It is in very good condition for its age with minimal wear - mainly some minor denting and discoloration to the back (see photos). This piece would make a striking necklace.

I ship by PRIORITY MAIL in US.

Somehow I managed to part with this as a gift to my husband's grandmother. It was hard for me to give away, but I know she loves it just as much as I would, so that's some comfort to my tiny, shrivelled, selfish heart. ;)
