Antique Persian Engraved Silver Vase
$2400.00

This antique Persian Silver vase measures 7 inches tall (17 cm) by 5 1/2 inches in diameter (14.5 cm).

It dates circa 1700-1850 or earlier.

It is finely engraved with alternating medallions of bird in an ornate floral landscape and medallions of symmetrical calligraphy. Between the medallions are additional engraved floral wreaths

There are three silver hallmarks on the base. The usual standard of Persian silver is .84 or 84/100 pure silver.

Condition is excellent except for a small bung (see enlargement). Overall, this is an outstanding work of art and much nicer than my poor photos would indicate. Any color changes in the photos are from the flash and not on the vase itself.
