Rare Islamic - Persian Bronze Oil Lamp Stand / Iran 12th Century / Lions, Birds For Sale

Antique Bronze Oil Lamp Stand Base and Tray
Persian - Islamic

Circa 1200 AD - 1100 AD

~ please scroll down for more photos ~ SIZE:

- 5.5" (13.9 - 7.75" (19.7 - 7.25" (18.4 cm) DESCRIPTION:

These two pieces were bought together from the same old collection of antiquities. I believe that they are two parts of the same Persian oil lamp stand, the base and top tray, however, with the tubular bronze upright shaft missing. The similar and proportionate sizes, the style and manner of decoration, the similar attachment protrusions for the upright, and the similar patina, all lead me to the conclusion that they belong together.

The lamp stand is made of heavy bronze with a brown and green oxidized, encrusted, and slightly worn patina.

Circa 1200 AD - 1100 AD. Western Persia (now Iran) - Central Asia.

The bases features engraved decoration with circles containing birds with heads upraised , Kufic inscriptions, and three sets of two Lions sharing a raised sculptural head (see photos). The top tray is decorated with similar engraved designs.

The missing upright tubular shaft would likely have been fairly simple and, for display purposes, the new owner of this lamp stand may want to have a new shaft made (possibly with a patina to make it look old). CONDITION:

Good condition, as shown in the photos and with the following noted: Ancient green, brown-red patina and encrustation. Wear to the surfaces overall. Ancient, probably excavated condition. Missing upright shaft. HISTORY:

This piece was purchased from an estate collection in the Point Reyes area of California several years ago. The collector obtained his collection in the late 1950s and the pieces in his collection were brought to the United States during the early part of the 20th century. ~ please click on image for high definition photos ~
