This beautiful tin with 2 porcelain bowls is new to the Images d'Orient collection.
The tin and bowls are decorated in the Moucharabieh design. The moucharabieh is a screen, usually built of turned wood pieces, assembled according to a complex geometrical pattern. It allowed the viewer to observe without being seen, thus its nickname, 'jealousy window'. This meticulous technique was and is still used on windows, balconies and ceilings, as well as furniture.
The tin measures 24 x 14 x 11.5cms. The two porcelain bowls, with a diameter of 12cms, are dishwasher safe.
The Moucharabieh collection includes mugs, coasters, placemats, soap rests and laminated wood trays.
