Persian Qajar Silver plate Rubiayat Pinch Bottle Flask

This unique flask has elaborate metal chasing depicting scenes from the Rubiayat of Omar Khayyam. Silver plate over copper. This was likely made in the 1950's in the style of Qajar metalwork as a presentation gift for oil or state department executives. Three unique scenes adorn the three sides of this uniquely shaped bottle. The metal tooling of every part is of the highest quality. The cork is in pristine condition, and the top is attached to the bottle with chains. The silverplate is partially rubbed off on part of the bottom, and the stopper. This unique piece weighs a little over 2 pounds, and measures 9.5" tall by 5" across.
