Privileged Design Khatam Marquetry on Hut Shape Decore Box - HKH3907 - Persis Crafts
Khatam means "incrustation", and "Khatam-Kari" means "incrustation work". This craft consists in the production of incrustation patterns (generally star-shaped, with thin sticks of wood (ebony, teak, ziziphus, orange, rose), brass (for golden parts), camel bones (white parts). Ivory, gold or silver can also be used for collection objects.
Sticks are assembled in triangular beams, themselves assembled and glued in a strict order to create a cylinder, 70 cm in diameter, whose cross-section is the main motif: a six-branch star included in a hexagon. These cylinders are cut into shorter cylinders, and then compressed and dried between two wooden plates, before being sliced for the last time, in 1 mm wide trenches. These sections are ready to be placed and glued on the object to be decorated, before lacquer finishing.
The tranche can also be softened by heating in order to wrap around objects. Many objects can be decorated in this fashion, such as jewellery/decorative boxes, chessboards, cadres, pipes, desks, frames or some musical instruments. Khatam can be used on Persian miniature, realising true work of art.
