Nice antique Middle Eastern shoe shine box, of fine brass and wood with beautiful inlay work on the front and upper. On each side are brass domed lids that open, they have the original hardware but the hooks that hold these shut one is bent, other one missing. On the back of the box are two nice drawers and pull open with lovely knobs, and one fold down door that opens up for the large center interior of the box, great hiding spot for valuables. This piece originally would have held glass bottles on the velvet lined step shelves on each side, those are long gone. The entire piece measures 29" long, 8" deep, 14" tall at the domes, chain handle for carrying original and intact, and the solid brass support for placing the shoe. First it certainly can be used for its original purpose, but also a beautiful item for home decoration or for those that collect Middle Eastern. Will ship UPS, shipping cost due to size and weight. This item has been in our home for years as part of our own Eastern collection, no aromas, no smoking home.
