Mother of Pearl Inlayed Hexagonal Box
Store your precious treasures in this handmade hexagonal box with lid. In the alleys of the Kahn market of Egypt, craftsmen with extraordinary talent and patience inlay the mother of pearl onto metal or wood. The mother of pearl is cut into different shapes and then individually applied to form the finished design, usually a geometric or floral motif. Each piece may take several days to complete and becomes a work of art to be cherished.
