$149


This is an Antique Hand-hammered Artistic Bowl marked "Made in Syria".

I think it is made between late 1800s to 1930s to be sold to tourists on the shouks.

Got Hebrew inscription I can't make out. Hebrew letters... Maybe something Kabbalistic I'm not familiar with. Belowis anelaborate Arabic calligraphy, the kind used for Quoranic verses.

Than, clearly, Egyptian-style images with Sphynx & Egyptian head dress. Also, Indian-style Elephant with rider, animals, fishes & more.

I've seen Turkish bowls similar w/Hebrew inscription that, I've been told, were used in bathhouses in 18th cent. Those people attached some mystical meaning to Hebrew, possibly for Biblical Torah mikva purification in water.

This bowl is Syrian, not Turkish. Marked so in English.

Jewish craftsmen in Damascus & Aleppo were known for their brass works.

Made of solid thick brass by dove-tail interlocking construction that requires high craftsmanship & skill.

9.75" in diameter. 6.25" tall. Weigh 1 lb. 12 oz.

Original patina. Could be hand-touched for better image quality.
