Rare and Important 19c Silver and Enamel Persian Cup by Mohammed Ali Yousufi
For your considerationisa very rareand important Persian silver andenamel cup made by Mohammed Ali Yousufi. The piece is absolutely beautiful and masterfully done. The silver work is unparalelled with the wires painstakingly placed for the enamel to have a place to sit. The cup is substantial, weighing 325 grams. It is 5.25inches tall,2.375 inches in diameter at the top, and 1.875 inches in diameter at the bottom. The whole cup is scalloped with each curve basically being it's own panel. The top has margin decorated withthe silver worked into a floral motif.Each panel has it's own small medallion at the top. One of the medallionshas the mark of the silversmith, Mohammed Ali Yousufi.The bottom showshis mark also, as well as the standardreading 84. This is the same standard as Russia and represents .875 silver. The cup was made in the 19th century.This is an extremely rare and amazing piece that rarely comes onto the market for sale. There are some spots thatI am not sure if there are very slight losses to the enamel or if it wasjust the way it was applies. I am leaning toward the latter.If this is shipping internationally please keep in mind that there will probably be taxes, duties, tariffs, or VAT due upon pickup. I will try to give you an estimate of that prior to shipping. We have lots of other unique items and are always adding moreso please check out our store often. Thank you for looking.
