Ottoman Islamic Brass Medicine Bowl

Traditional Islamic magic bowl for healing covered with engraved writing. Has boteh shaped designs with prayers within, also a Keyhole doorway, or mirab shaped shaped cartouche. Other prayers are covering every possible surface including the rim. The exterior has no ornamentation. The middle of the bottom of the bowl has a deep indentation, possibly to make it easy to hold. It measures 5.5" diameter by 1.5" tall, and weighs 6 ounces.
