I am selling this amazing very rare Persian Qajar copper tray
I am selling this extremely fine antique Islamic brass tray with silver inlay. They tray is very large and very heavy good quality item. It has been inlaid with silver to form beautiful Arabic calligraphy of extremely fine quality and also patterns and geometric designs typical of Islamic artowork.
The main aspect of the tray that makes this such a rare and collectible item is KUFIC around the centre. Kufic script is the most rare and desirable script of Islamic calligraphy. This is because it is the oldest style and the first Qurans that were made, were completed using Kufic scripts. This is why it is such a rare and collectible aspect of any Islamic antique.
The border has been finished with some animals such as fish which is typical to see in Islamic art.
The brass background has also been chased if you look carefully. It is extremely fine quality.
