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.

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.
