Vintage Egyptian Silver Repousse Water Vessel Cairo Hallmark -Wartime Production (Code 2513)
A mid 20th century Egyptian silver vessel decorated with flower heads and scrolling leaf designs. Although it looks like it may come apart it is joined in the center and does not open. There are two handles and the style of the item is that of a traditional pot for cooking fava beans, however it is more likely this piece would be for water or simply as a decorative item. It has a hallmark to the base and to the side for Cairo 1942 making this item of wartime production which is perhaps a little unusual. The silver grade is 900, just slightly below Sterling. Quite a substantial item and far heavier a gauge of silver than necessary for a decorative piece.
Generally very good with minor wear, no significant knocks or dents.
