This is an exquisite example of Turkish miniature art, a tiny yet magnificent hand-painted ring jewelry box in the shape of a treasure chest. Carved from camel bone, prepared by boiling the bone many times, then thoroughly drying it. This mini masterpiece was hand-carried back from Turkey in the early 1990s.

The box measures just 1 7/8 inches high X 2 1/4 inches across X 1 1/2 inches deep. It is covered in vividly painted scenes of a wedding celebration on all sides, featuring a bride and groom sharing a cup of wine on the top of the rounded lid. Inside, the box has a velvet base, perfect for the carrying or storing of rings.

In classical Turkish miniatures, human subjects predominate over views of buildings or landscapes. The outlines are elegant, the colors vivid and the style narrative. The art of Turkish miniatures continues to thrive in Istanbul, Ankara, Konya, Izmir, and Kütahya provinces.

A rare and beautiful piece of Turkish folk art, in perfect condition. Totally unique, as no two are the same...
