I took this picture on my visit to Malek Museum few years ago. This is a pen-case, in which Persians stored their pens. They were normally crafted with colorful images. Most later versions were influenced by the European visual art at we could see on this item. This particular one is perhaps made in 18th or 19th century. There are many similar items which come from Qajar Dynasty.
