Vintage Egyptian Brass & Hand Damascened Bowl with Arabic Islamic Calligraphy (Code 2511)
A hand damascened brass bowl in the Egyptian style. It was likely made in Cairo in the first half of the 20th century c1930 when there was a resurgence of interest in the Mamluk history. The bowl is brass with a lovely mellow tone and inlaid with copper and silver. It is of about the size of an offering bowl and could have been used for many purposes. Quite a decent gauge of brass and quite heavy for the size.
Generally good and has been kept quite well polished. Some patination in areas. Images give good representation of overall condition.
