Moucharabieh tin with 2 coffee cups
The Moucharabieh tin with 2 coffee cups is from the stunning Images d’Orient collection. This collection was designed by the designer Peggy Raphael Dabar in Lebanon.
This tin has 2 compartments each holding a 90ml coffee cup. It is decorated in the Moucharabieh design.
The moucharabieh is a screen usually built from small carved or turned wooden pieces assembled according to a complex geometrical scheme. The screen allowed viewers to observe what was going on without being seen, thus its nickname ‘jealousy window’. This meticulous technique was and still is used in windows, balconies, ceilings and vaults as well as on furniture.
The tin can be used for decoration, for storing jewellery, teas or anything you like. The two sections are decorated in a different design based on the same theme.
The tin measures 16cm with a diameter of 7.5cm.
Match this tin with coasters, placemats, bowls, mugs, trivets, soap holders and even a beautiful laminated tray in the same design.
