All six lobes contain Islamic script cartouches. The center of the tray features a wheel of Islamic script. The word Syria is stamped on the front of the tray, common with early 20th C. pieces fabricated for tourists. Meticulously hand carved, the fabrication of this type of metalwork is a dying art.
