Where is this box from?

Postby juantotree » Thu Apr 09, 2020 9:52 am

Hi

This lidded box has me a little stumped. It has an Indian look about it or possibly Middle East or maybe Cyprus it has the two marks shown, can anybody help me identify where it is from?

Many Thanks
Martin

Hi,
Persia (Iran), fineness 84 similar to Imperial Russian 84 Zolotnik.
Maker`s mark in Arabic (Farsi).
