I have been told by an Iranian artist that the images are from Persepolis in Shiraz. Persepolis was the Palace of Cyrus and his son Darius. It was destroyed by Alexander. Supposedly there is a story written on this tray....a story that took a very long time to write.
This tray is very rare and unique and was hand sculpted in Iran during the Shah’s regime. It was carved out of a piece of thick solid brass. The owner was an American worker in Iran who became enthralled with the work of this artist. He watched him every single day - hand pound (not stamp) the story that is written on this tray. He became friendly with the artist and worked up a wonderful friendship with him, but was forced to evacuate the country when the Shah’s regime crumbled. He purchased this work of art for a large sum and displayed it over his mantle in his private home.I recently had it professionally cleaned and the brass refinisher told me he has never seen such a beautiful piece! It really must be seen to be appreciated.
