This brass Islamic medallion tray has a great deal of detail and texture to it's traditional Mamluk influenced design, There are foliate quatrefoil bands separating the central Islamic calligraphy medallion, with three cartouches of Islamic script separated by stylistic foliate eliptical medallions The level of detail to this carving is absolutely mesmerizing. Meticulously hand carved, the fabrication of this type of metalwork is a dying art. This tray is moderately patinated with a few oxidation spots. Measuring 15", and weighing nearly 2.25 pounds, this piece is surprisingly heavy. This tray is estimated to be 80-120 years old
