Every inch of this Moroccan chest is an incredible work of art. This vintage Moroccan storage chest was once used as a wedding dowry gift, filled with jewelry and presented from a man to his future bride. Made almost entirely of hand-carved and decorated camel bone, the chest is lined in hand-painted Tuareg leather, with metal repousse creating geometric designs and borders. Small round red coral beads decorate the front and back.

Made entirely of hand-cut camel bone, this small Moroccan chest is called a sandok. This chest is quite old and has been passed down through generations of Berber tribesman. These smaller chests would typically be filled with Berber jewelry to ensure a wife's economic security.
