Charming pair of 900 Egyptian Silver candlesticks in a simple, understated tapered baluster supporting an urn shaped candle cup, set on a spreading, circular base. These are unweighted, and I would recommend adding weights if using tall tapers. Hallmarks are as shown on the stem and base of each candlestick. I believe that these are from around 1960. They measure a little over 8 inches tall by 3.5 inches across, and weighing 9.2 ounces.

There is a second identical pair available with one tiny dent on the stem of one candlestick available at a $25.00 discount. A jeweler might be able to minimize the dent. You may order one or both pairs using the order button.

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.

19th century Mamluk revival Cairoware inlaid casket or box. It was made for keeping tobacco, and the original cedar wood lining is still intact and clean. This box has five different Islamic Script cartouches with trefoil semi-medallions. There is also a chain panel encircling the lid which features the largest, central medallion. The casket measures 4.5" long, by 2.75" deep and 2.75" tall. and weighs a little under a pound. It has a moderate patina, and the piece is overall in good condition, cosidering it's age. 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 patronage of the arts, thus this was the most prolific and influential period for Islamic art. Mamluk metal ware is recognizable 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 Mameluk artifacts during this period of time.
