This exquisite box is of square form and crafted in solid silver. The upper panel is engraved with a rooftop view of the Green Dome in Medina, Saudi Arabia. The Green Dome was built to cover the site of the tomb of the prophet Muhammad. The engraving bears an Arabic inscription along the lower edge, and is also titled 'Medina - The Green Dome' in English. The edges of the box are stippled, and it opens at a rear hinge to reveal an interior of solid silver.

The box is marked to the underside with the inscription 'INCISA NELLA BOTTEGA DI MARIO BUCCELLATI' which translates as 'engraved in the workshop of Mario Buccellati'. The box is also stamped with a silver 925 mark to the interior of the edge. The box comes in the original Buccellati presentation case.
