This 19th century enameled tray was made in Damascus or Aleppo Syria using a Cuerda Seca style enameling which is done in the following manner: The design is stamped or carved into the surface after which colored glazes are applied. The contours of the designs are detailed with a mixture of beeswax or vegetable fat and manganese oxide. During the firing, the wax or fat burns away producing contours of red or black that also prevent the differently-colored glazes from running into one another. This technique was created during the Seljuk (14th-15th C.) period in Persia, (modern Iran and Iraq) and eventually made it's way via Syria, Turkey, Greece, and Italy to Spain where it is used extensively in tile and pottery making even today. There are some minor enamel losses, but considering the age of the tray, it is in quite good shape with minor losses on one edge as shown. This Charming piece measures 12" across and weighs 3 pounds.

Vintage Brazier or Censer likely a reproduction of an earlier design. At first glance, the overall design appears to be Qajar Persian with the typical themes of birds and deer. However, it is marked with the name of the manufacturer and "made in Greece". The design is subtly carved with pierced areas which will let light through if a candle is burned within. The inside seems to be painted gold, perhaps to enhance reflectivity. This has water marks inside from previous use as a planter. The body of the piece is made of hand worked copper, and the handles are cast brass. This has three handles which is unusual for this sort of piece, possibly symbolic of the Holy Trinity. Measuring 7" high, by 10" across, this highly unusual piece weighs about 3 pounds.
