Persian Marquetry Wall Clock – 31 cm

In the heart of ancient Isfahan, a city known for its mesmerising blend of art and architecture, artisans sit hunched over their worktables, deeply engrossed in the age-old craft of Khatam Kari (Persian: خاتم کاری), or Persian marquetry. From within this world of precision and passion emerges a timepiece, not just any, but one that carries the whispers of history and the dedication of its makers.

Our wall clock, with a width of 6.3 inches on its enamelled surface, and 12.2 inches across its body, stands as a testament to the elegance of Persian craftsmanship. The enamelled surface, crafted from copper, reflects the artistry of Isfahan, while the body of the clock is a symphony of materials – wood, camel’s bone, and brass, each telling its own tale. With a depth of 6.3 inches on its enamelled facade and 12.2 inches for its body, and weighing a mere 2 pounds, this piece exudes a delicate charm.

It’s not just a wall clock. It’s a journey into the depths of Isfahan, its history, and the art of Khatam Kari. Each piece, unique and one of a kind, signifies the beauty of handcrafted artistry. And while it might not come housed in a gift box, its value goes beyond physical containers – it’s a piece of history, a slice of culture, and a testament to craftsmanship. Every tick you hear is a reminder of the hours of dedication that went into creating this masterpiece.
