THIS ITEM WILL BE POSTED FROM BELGIUM. FINE ANTIQUE ISLAMIC PERSIAN GOLD DAMASCENED IRON KASHKUL DERVISH ALMS BOWL.
This is a wonderful antique late 19th or early 20th Century iron Kashkul or Dervish alms bowl. It is covered in beautifully realised script, likely taken from the Qur'an and inscribed onto the surface of the vessel and then damascened in gold. An example with very similar work but a different form can be found in the Met Museum.
The loop / lug attachment is missing to one side and general wear and age related degradation to the metal as the photos show. It is about 20.5cms long (not including the loop). It weighs about 776g unpacked.
PLEASE be a little patient with the post - I will get them posted asap but I work on my own, have a large amount to post and I do pack carefully. I also post in the order that things are paid for. Any delays by the postal services either at my end or abroad are rarely my fault.
/ rest of the world. I add on very little, often not enough to cover the packaging materials, so the price I quote really is as fair as possible.
