Complete Middle Eastern brass silver and copper inlaid coffee set. The brass tray measures 13 " across, and is inlaid in silver and copper. There are three cartouches of Islamic script, alternating with lobed endless knot medallions. The rim has a braided endless knot pattern often seen in Celtic designs as well. The set includes six 2" "Gawa" or coffee cups (Zarfs) with green hand spun Egyptian Glass inserts, and the classically shaped 6" "Ibrik" or coffee server is tin-lined for safe usage. The covered sugar bowl measures 3" tall without the finial. The final photo shows the zarfs with a white porcelain insert instead of the spun glass. If you would prefer the porcelain inserts, please let me know when purchasing the set, and I'll make the substitution for you. This was made for the tourist trade around the turn of the 20th century.
