Decorated Abbasid bronze bowl, 8th.-9th. AD
A superbly decorated bronze bowl, dating to the period of Abbasid dominance in Iran, 7th.-9th. AD.

This bowl belongs to the interesting group of metal vessels which were made of high tin, or white bronze, in Persian sefd ry or in Arabic nuhs abyad, an alloy of copper and zinc from around the 7th. cent and onwards.

This bowl is incised and punched with a beautyful starshaped pattern on the exteriour and a highly complicated interiour pattern.

Size: A large bowl, c. 190 x 55 mm.

Condition: Superb, with a few spots of verdigris, which can be cleaned. An exceptionally well-preserved piece.
