This tin has four levels or compartments and 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 on wondows, balconies, ceilings and vaults as well as on furniture.
This tin can be used for decoration, for storing jewellery, herbs or anything you like. Each compartment is decorated in a different design based on the same theme.
The tin is 22cm high and 8cm in diameter.
