|A begging bowl used by Sufis, Dervish and other Mendicants who have renounced earthly goods and subsist on charity from the devout, for both their own nourishment as well as for delivering food to the poor. A somewhat boat shaped copper bowl, with an applied foot and suspension chain. The body of the bowl is incised with geometric patterns. Shows muted wear from use and age but in very good condition. Nice patina, Possibly late Qajar Period. Approx. 8" in length and 5.5" in width.|
