Antique Persian engraved Copper Bowl, 17th C.
Description: Wonderful and well executed copper bowl from Safavid era "Safavid Dynasty 1502-1736". Interior and exterior fully decorated with the exterior depicting hunting scene with men on horseback chasing animals and on the base engraved shape of an elephant. Interior is composed of engraved human and animal figures and on the base a man on the horse. The workmanship is excellent and especially engraving on the small and curved areas is very challenging and in this case the artist successfully has rendered a great job. Size: 3 1/8" in diameter and 1 inch high. Buyer pays the shipping cost. For a similar example, see Christie's, April 24, 1990.
