Nader Shah was a miltary mastermind of his time. He defeated the Mughal army of Muhammad shah despite being outnumbered six - to - one. The breathtaking tray has been hand chased beautifully depicted the battle. There is stunningly high level of detail. This scene is rare to see hand chased on metal works.It is normally documenting in manuscripts, however to find a the battle portrayed on a brass tray is very rare! Nader shah was one of the most powerful rulers and was a military genius.
I highly recommend you read up on him, as well the battle of Karnal, along with Muhammad shah. There is very fine floral work hand chased all around the four edges of the tray too.
This has also been completed to the same high standard as the central scene. The length of the tray 54cm = 21.3 inches. The width of the tray is 37cm = 14.3 inches. The tray is in very good condition.
A couple of very minor (tiny) dings, nothing serious. Please see the photos shown above. The item "VERY FINE RARE 19th C ANTIQUE PERSIAN QAJAR ISLAMIC BRASS TRAY NADER SHAH WAR" is in sale since Sunday, February 10, 2019.
