This stunning tin with 2 mugs in the Moucharabieh design is part of the Images d’Orient collection.
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 on windows, balconies, ceilings and vaults as well as on furniture.
The tin measures 24 x 14 x 11.5cms and hold 2 (220ml) porcelain mugs. The mugs are dishwasher safe.
Also in the Moucharabieh design are coasters, trivets, placemats, laminated wood trays, and soap rests.
