Antique Persian/Damascus Solid Silver Tri Lobe Vase with Traditional Patterns (Code 2408)
An antique Persian design silver vase dating to the early 20th century. It is of tri-lobe form with a stepped base. The body is decorated all over with traditional patterns in the Damascus style using both repousse and chasing methods. A calligraphic style pattern also runs around the base piece.
The vase is hand made with signs of the silver being hand beaten. There are no marks which is not uncommon especially for antique examples. It tests as very high grade silver, Sterling or better.
Good for period, normal light wear. Slight indents around base, it is hand made so not a machine perfect piece. Patch of scratching to underside base (where someone has previously tested for silver). Minor flaw line in silver from hand beating to inside of one of the lobes. Generally well polished with some patina in areas.
