This brass pot has a great deal of detail and texture to it's traditional Mamluk design, TheThe shoulder is encircled with a foliate chain with trefoil accents. The Islamic calligraphy cartouches alternate with endless knot medallions. The main belly has a series of unusually shaped script cartouches. Unfortunately, this piece has some extensive damage to the bottom, which still displays well, and would not be noticed if this is used as a planter. Measuring 9 1/2" tall by 14" across, this amazing pot weighs nearly four pounds. Meticulously hand carved, the fabrication of this type of metalwork is a dying art. This piece is estimated to be 70-100 years old.

The Mamluk dynasty existed from approximately 1250 to 1500 A.D. The Mamluks were slave soldiers from Central Asia 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. There was a revival of this style of art spurred on by wealthy travelers who went "on tour" for extended periods of time.
