Moroccan Style Blanket Chest w/ Mother of Pearl Inlay
20th Century, Inscribed Arabic on Panels
Item # 120006ROP24
This rather unique blanket chest is hand crafted with very strong Middle Eastern influence in the overall Gothic style. The chest is enhanced with a plethora of inlaid mother-of-pearl designs, fan inlays highlighting each panel, borders formed with repeating motifs and carved Arabic-inscribed panels at the top. Along the bottom, a long gallery of turned stiles frames the chest, resting over plain bracket feet and mounted on a wheeled base. It opens to a clean interior, very broad and large.
This would make a simply incredible entertainment stand for a wide screen TV, as well as a decorative piece at the end of the master bed or between two chairs as a side table. It is a very unique and visually interesting piece, not frequently found. Handmade in every aspect, it is just the piece to add some flavor to that special space in your home.
