Hand Made Silver Box, Iran

Here is a beautiful hand made silver box. The origin is most likely Iran. The top cover and sides of this box are very richly decorated by chasing and repousse`. I have done some pieces in the past using this technique and can tell you it is very time consuming and as you see here requiring much skill. I was fortunate to purchase this artifact from someone who primarily saw the value of the silver. This box weighs over 19 troy ounces, over 600 grams.
