Description
Oval-shaped damascene trinket box with a domed hinged-lid and four short baluster-shape feet. Damascening is the art of inlaying different type of metals into one another, with gold and/or silver typically used and set into a darkly oxidized steel background, with the result of producing intricate patterns similar to niello. The English term originates from a perceived resemblance to the rich tapestry patterns of damask textiles, these in turn obtaining their name from the city of Damascus. - (CB.90)
