This unique flask has elaborate metal chasing depicting scenes from the Rubiayat of Omar Khayyam. Silver plate over copper. This was likely made in the 1950's in the style of Qajar metalwork as a presentation gift for oil or state department executives. Three unique scenes adorn the three sides of this uniquely shaped bottle. The metal tooling of every part is of the highest quality. The cork is in pristine condition, and the top is attached to the bottle with chains. The silverplate is partially rubbed off on part of the bottom, and the stopper. This unique piece weighs a little over 2 pounds, and measures 9.5" tall by 5" across.

This graceful pair of Mamluk Revival Islamic vases have two different Islamic calligraphy cartouches with simple foliate medallions in between. There are also chain details encircling the vase near the top and bottom, as well as semi medallions ringing the bottom. They are the same size, obviously from the same maker, but like many Islamic hand crafted items, are not an exact match. The vases measure 12" tall and 4.5" across and weigh 16 ounces each. These were made in the 1960's for the tourist trade.

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.

This brass Moroccan star tray has a traditional Berber design, and appears to have several dimensions of stars and foliate textures carved into it. With a classic Islamic thirteen pointed star, which points end at indentations for tea or coffee cups or glasses. Meticulously hand carved, the fabrication of this type of metalwork is a dying art. Measuring 28"across by 22" tall, and weighing nine pounds, this piece is surprisingly heavy. It comes paired with it's original base of ebonised wood embellished with brass accents. Great for an exotic or Hollywood Regency style decor. This piece is estimated to be 30-40 years old.

A smaller scale Moroccan shoeshine box intended for use as a personal valet for maintaining one's clothing and shoes. Various bottles for cleaning products as well as rose water and and other perfuming agents. It measures 12" long, by 11.5" tall, by 5" deep, and weighs about 8 pounds before packing. Although one would usually associate this style of shoeshine box with Turkey, the enameling is consistent in color and texture to Moroccan enamel, and I have seen similar full sized shoeshine boxes in use in Morocco in the past.

This is a very simple copper aftaba or pitcher embellished with four medallions, three with a rose theme, and the fourth, under the spout, a small tree. There is dovetailing evident across the belly where the top and bottom were joined. The spout has a slightly sharper bend from being bumped. At some point there was a silver wash applied, which has mostly worn away. This style of carving is more associated with Afghanistan rather than Iran. The pot measures 13.75" tall by 5.25" diameter and 8.5" from handle to spout and weighs a little over 3 pounds.

Vintage Brazier or Censer likely a reproduction of an earlier design. At first glance, the overall design appears to be Qajar Persian with the typical themes of birds and deer. However, it is marked with the name of the manufacturer and "made in Greece". The design is subtly carved with pierced areas which will let light through if a candle is burned within. The inside seems to be painted gold, perhaps to enhance reflectivity. This has water marks inside from previous use as a planter. The body of the piece is made of hand worked copper, and the handles are cast brass. This has three handles which is unusual for this sort of piece, possibly symbolic of the Holy Trinity. Measuring 7" high, by 10" across, this highly unusual piece weighs about 3 pounds.
