|( ID: ii528 )|
A very example of an original late 18th C.-mid 19th C. gold overlaid Qalamdan pen box. This example is overlaid with numerous designs of riders on horseback and other motifs. The underside also shows the remains of silver koftgari overlay. Very fine example, and uncommon to find all iron with gold overlay of this quality.
