Antique Bronze Plate C 15th Century Ayasofia Mosque & Jewish Purim Engraving:
An Antique Bronze Plate From Around The 16th Century
The plate seems to be from around the 15th century by the state of the bronze and the scenes engraved on it. The engraving on its outer circle seems to be very old, depicting what looks like a Jewish Purim holiday festival. The "AYASOFIA" engraving and the engraving of the mosque in the middle looks like a later added work (in style and state), maybe from the 17th or 18th century. It is more of a surface only engraving whilst the circle around it is deeper and much older.
It is not polished or cleaned. Has signs of wear due to its age.
The plate is 14cm\5.5" in diameter and weighs 295 grams.
