This beautifully decorated rectangular box is made of solid silver, and bears an engraved scene of the Prophet's Mosque in Medina, Saudi Arabia- the second most holy site in Islam. The mosque tower can be seen through Moorish style arches, which are rendered in wondrous detail. The scene bears an Arabic inscription to the upper right, alongside an inscription in English reading 'MEDINA - THE PROPHET'S MOSQUE'.

The box is marked to the underside with the Italian translation for 'engraved in the workshop of Mario Buccellati' and the box bears silver hallmarks to the interior rim, as well as a personalised inscription on the interior lid. The box comes housed in its original green box, which also bears the stamp of Mario Buccellati.
