Measuring 4 3/4" (12cm) high, this Mamluk revival censor contains a removable insert, and is inlaid with silver and copper, with incised designs over the surface of the brass. The inlay is heavy, and is in high relief, with no losses, though the silver has some tarnish. Has some wear and minor dents from usage, but in good condition with nice patina. A rare form, this censer dates to the 19th century.

Measuring 3 1/4" square, and 2 1/2" high, this ceramic inkwell is in the form of a building typical of the Middle East and North Africa. The lid covers the single ink container, and makes a "roof" for the building. The clay body is a buff color, with glazes of blue, turquoise, green, mustard yellow, and magenta, all traditional colors for North African ceramics. In good condition, no chips or cracks, just minor wear to the high points on the scalloped roof line...
