This is an old Persian Paper Mache box which measures 210mm x 64mmx 45mm originating from Qajar. This box could probably serve as pen case or Qalamdan.
It is beautifully lacquered in a floral motif with beautiful bright colors.
The box painted in polychrome and gilt,  covers and sides with bulbuls perched amidst wild roses and apple blossoms.
