Antique Persian Safavid Copper Kashkool, 17th C.
Kashkool was a wooden or metal bowl carried by Sufis daravish and it was used to store food and offerings. Description: Very fine crafted antique Persian copper Kashkool, Safavid period(1510-1710), some colleagues believe, due to the style of the script,it could even be earlier possibly Timurid. Very well designed with a band of Koranic verses on the top followed by floral design and the two entangled fish which is repeated throughout the bowl,it has to have symbolic meaning in Sufism. It bears the maker's mark and I could count three other generation of daravish owning the bowl in different time period. It is just an amazing item. Measurement: The bowl ha a height of 4 inches and is 12 inches wide with the depth of 5 inches. Condition Report: Excellent condition for the period. For a similar example, see Christie's, April 24, 1990.
