Created in Bukhara, modern day Uzbekistan, this Islamic casket reaffirms the city’s historic status as one of the finest producers of crafts and luxury goods on the Silk Road.

The silver casket is decorated with royal blue, turquoise and deep blue enamels, arranged into circular medallions, quatrelobed forms and various other ornamental shapes. These are covered in beautiful silver scrolling forms, which add great intricacy to the design. The casket is fitted with hinged side handles and is set on four beautifully-cast lion's feet.

This casket could be used to store special jewellery, or enjoyed simply as an aesthetic object of great beauty.
