19th century Mamluk Revival Cairoware inlaid vase. This vase has four different Islamic Script cartouches with simple endless knot and trefoil semi-medallions in between. There are also chain panels encircleing the vase near the top and base. This vase has an unusual feature of deep channels highlighted by copper inlay surrounding the cartouches. The vase measures 7" high and 3.5" in diameter, and weighs a little under a pound. The Mamluk dynasty existed from approximately 1250 to 1500 A.D. The Mamluks were slave soldiers who earned their freedom and became rulers of a dynasty which lasted 250 years. Their rulers were known for patonage of the arts, thus this was the most prolific and influential period for Islamic art. Mamluk metalware is recognizeable by the repeated cartouches and medallions and the chain patterns encircling the pieces. Copper and silver inlay into brass pieces is also commonly found. This particular vase was made in the 19th or early 20th century for trade to wealthy travelers who went "on tour" for extended periods of time, and liked to bring back "historical artifacts" Because of the demand and other influences, there was a revival of many types of Mamluk artifacts during this period of time.

Intricately hand carved Kashmiri Brass Samovar. Lightly patinated, This particular samovar has some amazingly fine foliate detail featuring maple leaves, with a serpent handle, and fancy ornamental openwork at the base. The lid had a smaller lid for access to the coal chamber tube which heats the water from within. This has been tested for leaks. I filled it to within 1 inch from the top and let it set for an hour, and there is no sign of leakage. It is in very good condition with the exception of a small dent on either side. Measuring 12" tall, and 10.5" from handle to spout, and weighing three pounds this is far more solid and substantial than usual for Kashmir metalwork from this period, This is estimated to be made in Kashmir about 100 years ago.

Turn of the 20th century Bedouin copper tray. This was used as a dining table. The woman of the house (or tent) would put a floor-cloth down, then bring the tray laden with salad greens, green onions, flat bread, and bowls and plates of food. The family would eat communally with their hands scooping up the food with bread or lettuce. The wear on the pattern is consistent with frequent scrubbing. Very little of the original tin plating remains as a result. It measures 26.5" X .5", and weighs 10lbs.
