19th century Mamluk Revival Cairoware inlaid vase. This vase has four different Islamic Script cartouches with simple endless knot and trefoil semi-medallions in between. There are also chain panels encircleing the vase near the top and base. This vase has an unusual feature of deep channels highlighted by copper inlay surrounding the cartouches. The vase measures 7" high and 3.5" in diameter, and weighs a little under a pound. The Mamluk dynasty existed from approximately 1250 to 1500 A.D. The Mamluks were slave soldiers who earned their freedom and became rulers of a dynasty which lasted 250 years. Their rulers were known for patonage of the arts, thus this was the most prolific and influential period for Islamic art. Mamluk metalware is recognizeable by the repeated cartouches and medallions and the chain patterns encircling the pieces. Copper and silver inlay into brass pieces is also commonly found. This particular vase was made in the 19th or early 20th century for trade to wealthy travelers who went "on tour" for extended periods of time, and liked to bring back "historical artifacts" Because of the demand and other influences, there was a revival of many types of Mamluk artifacts during this period of time.

Intricately carved Mosque lamp from Syria. This qandeel features six arched windows. Between each window is a turned baluster type fretwork with chickens and turned knob finials. This is suspended by three chains that meet at the top. The font is missing, but doesn't detract from the esthetics of this piece. The top section is segmented into six design panels alternating between trefoil and spiderweb designs above four alternating cartouches with Islamic calligraphy, and foliate medallions. The lower section has eight panels alternating between cartouches of foliate, spiderweb, and Islamic script, with the rest of it in a spiderweb design. This has a chicken finial with a hole that a cord can be threaded through for electrification, which I believe is not original to this piece. The fineness of the carving is unusual and exceptional. There is some of the original gilding intact. This has the best quality of craftsmanship of any Syrian piece I've had in over 35 years of collecting. This unique piece measures 14" tall and 18" to the top of the chain, and 6" in diameter, and weighs nearly 3 pounds.

Meticulously hand carved Kashmiri personal warmer. Lightly patinated, This particular Pot has some amazingly fine foliate detail featuring paisley snakes. The opening of the caged area has a pair of peacocks on either side. It is in very good condition. Measuring 8.5" tall, and 6" in diameter, and weighing one and a quarter pounds before packing, this is far more solid and substantial than usual for Kashmir brass work from this period. I'm told that coals would be loaded into the pot, and a cord would be attached to the loop, and it would be worn to help the wearer stay warm. This is estimated to be made in Kashmir 100 to 150 years ago.
