Antique Military Zarf Turkish Ottoman silver 19th c
A pair of antique 18th -19th century Turkish Ottoman silver Islamic coffee cup stands Zarfs of broad bowl and a low splayed foot pierced with foliate motifs engraved around with mosque, Ottoman trophy of arms, flags, cannons, axes and large tugra –the official cypher of Ottoman sultans. The bowl and the foot are fully hallmarked with Imperial Ottoman assay office hallmark tughras and sahs.
DIMENSIONS: Height: 4.5 cm (1 3/4 in), Diameter: 5.5 cm (2 1/8 in). Weight of the two zarfs: 47 g (1 5/8 oz).
Condition: The pair is in good condition except for a slight 1 mm split at the rim of the pierced border of one of the zarfs. There are no repairs or restorations. The zarfs appear on the pictures crooked due to a technical error of the camera.
Since the Zarfs are decorated with typical Turkish Ottoman military symbols, they must have been custom made for an officer of the Turkish army.
