Carved brass tray made in the early 20th century. This unique tray has a central medallion featuring Great Pyramids, the Sphinx, palm trees, flowers, and camels. Surrounding this is a ring of Hebrew lettering encircled by a foliate design. This has a pie crust edge. This particular tray was made in the early 20th century for trade to wealthy travelers who went "on tour" for extended periods of time, and liked to bring back "historical artifacts". With the discovery of King Tut's tomb, there was an increased demand for ancient Egyptian themed items. Because many of these travelers also traversed the Holy Land, Judaic themes of the Exodus as related in the Bible were particularly sought after. I believe that the letters are an acronym for a prayer as has been a Jewish tradition for Eons of time. This tray measures 23" across by 1.5" deep and weighs a little over 4 pounds.

19th century Mamluk Revival Cairoware inlaid incense burner in a brazier form. As in a full sized brazier, it consists of a two handled vase shaped base, a two handled coal pot, and a crescent moon topped pierced lid. This piece has two Islamic script cartouches alternating with trefoil semi-medallions. There is also a chain panel encircling the pot mirrored by the same chain pattern on the top surface of the base. The copper and silver inlays are well executed and tight. The brazier/burner measures 9.25" tall by 6" across, and weighs a little over a pound and a half. It has a light patina, and the piece is overall in good condition, considering it's age. The Mamluk dynasty existed from approximately 1250 to 1517 A.D. The Mamluks were slave soldiers who earned their freedom and became rulers of a dynasty which lasted over 250 years. Their rulers were known for patronage of the arts, thus this was the most prolific and influential period for Islamic art. Mamluk metalware 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 burner 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.

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.
