khatam karee means "hand-inlaid."  To inlay is to apply wood or other materials in geometric shapes to decorate the surface of various objects. The average is 250 pieces for every cubic centimeter of inlaid work.

The high-quality inlay on this box makes it a unique item. The hand-painted images of birds and flowers is a classic Persian motif. The wood trim is hand-carved, and the interior is varnished wood. The intricate pattern on the lid is known as esleemee in Persian (the closest translation is mosaic). This item would make an excellent gift for anyone who is fond of fine craftsmanship, folk arts, decorators or anyone looking for that extra touch of class for their home.
