This is a small marquetry box.
The top is not in very good condition, however, the sides are perfect.
I will appreciate if somebody can tell how old is it.

    This style of geometric parquetry (marquetry is used for more organic forms) has been produced all over the middle east for quite some time; I don't know offhand when it began, but it is still made today. I bought a few in Istanbul a couple of years ago; a friend has one from Israel, and my mother has one from Lebanon, and another friend bought several in Egypt. Sorry, I know that doesn't help much, but it's something at least.
