Painted Wedding Box

This early to mid-20th century wedding box was hand carved and painstaking painted in the Rif area of Northern Morocco. It would have once contained items given to a bride on her wedding day - including household linen and jewelry for instance.

These boxes are typically created from Mediterranean pine and painted red - the colour of celebration and fertility in North Africa. This piece has a repeating arch design with a colour palette of time-faded saffron, white and black against a deep maroon field.

Size: 110 cm length, 85 cm height, 40 cm depth
