$750.00 

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.

$1950.00 

Syrian pierced Islamic brass Mosque lamp made in the late 19th century. The bulbous top is ringed by five cartouches featuring pastoral animals with bands of similar animals ringing below and above. The cross hatched carved banding at the very top is a classic Mamluk design along with the cartouches. There are two tiers of "windows" with various colored glass framed by elaborately carved Moghul influenced borders, floral on the top tier, and birds on the bottom tier. The "tower" between the two floors features animals and mythical people, but was made upside down for some unknown reason. The bowl shaped bottom has 16 cartouches with mythical people ensconced within. The original font at the bottom, which would have held a candle is missing as is common with these pieces. The frets between the windows are sand casted, then hand finished with screws being made in house. Most finials have chickens, moons, or fancy knobs. Three of the chickens which originally had chains. this situation can be easily restored. While this is not wired for electricity, restoring the chains, and removing the top loop to make the hole accessible would be an easy conversion which would not compromise the integrity of the piece. This impressive piece measures 24" tall to the top of the newer 1.5" loop, by 10" across the widest point, and weighs 9 lbs

$425.00 

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.
