Antique Red Enameled Inlaid Brass Oil Lamp Incense Chalice Form India Persian ?:
Antique Red Enamel Inlaid Brass
Measures 4.75" Inches Tall
Up for sale we have a very interesting piece that came directly out of an estate. I am selling this for a friend who got it from the estate of a man who said it was a museum piece once upon a time, but I can't say that for certain. It looks like an old piece from India to me, but it could be from somewhere else nearby. I'm not exactly sure what this was used for, as the rim doesn't suggest it was a cup or chalice. It may have been some sort of oil lamp, or incense holder, but I don't know for sure. The bottom is hand engraved with a serial number which very well could have been from a museum but possibly something else as well. It has a fantastic old patina, but there is a lot of missing enamel which you can see in the pictures. It weighs 11.7 ounces. Neat item to add to any collection.
