This Egyptian brass vase was originally made for tourists on their "Grand Tour" in Egypt It has Mamluk inspired details of concentric chains encircling the pot as well as medallions containing Islamic script and Egyptian scenes. There is also a circle of wild beasts above the medallions, and stylized birds below. At some point, it had been converted to a lamp base, and can easily be reconfigured once again. It measures 10" tall, by 6 inches across and weighs a little under 2 pounds.
