Seller: butterflysbrokenwing (836) 99.4%, Location: Marietta, Georgia, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 122211464105 19th C Persian Islamic Silver Allah Calligraphy Brooch French Export Hallmarks A superb 19th C Persian Islamic Silver Allah Calligraphy Brooch bearing French Export and Makers Hallmarks. It is quite large at 2.5" in diameter. It is slightly domed in the center of the brooch where two more domes are affixed. Encircled at the top of the brooch, the name of God, "Allah" is formed in calligraphy made of silver wire. The brooch has beautiful piercing and fine filigree work in addition to beading and star appliques, which are quite unusual. There are bits of hand hammered decoration visible and the scalloping around the outside edge is formed with individual fine wire curls. This wonderful piece has a "C" clasp pin mechanism in good working order. This lovely pin is hallmarked on the front of the brooch, which is the norm in this period, in two places. One is the French Crab sterling silver standard, certifying the silver content to be at least .875. The other mark is a makers mark, a diamond shaped lozenge with a handshake symbol and the intials H on the left and G on the right. Over all this is a wonderful and rare example of workmanship and craftsmanship and a great example of Persian Islamic silver. Weight is 22.6 grams. Some, if not all, of my items are purchased from auctions or sales and have had a life and history prior to my owning of them. As a result of this, I may not know the history or what the item may have been exposed to during that time. I do my best to accurately describe the items I sell. If you are not pleased with something you purchase from me, please allow me to try to rectify this prior to leaving feedback or contacting ebay. I am very accomodating and will do all I can to make you happy! In response to many ebay customers abusing the return policy by claiming anything to get a return postage free, buyers remorse, etc. I have to change my return policy. I will accept certain return on a case by case basis. Buyers remorse, buying just to get a look at it, etc. will not be accepted for return. If there is something wrong with the bag, not described, if you have discussed with me prior that it may be needed for return ie: a gift, a certain style or size is required will be accepted by me. I apologize to my customers for this inconvenience but some selfish and inconsiderate users have ruined it for everyone. To anyone that has an interest in any of the bags listed on my store, I will be having a huge bag sale this weekend in my yard so if you want any of these bags, buy it tonight because, more than likely, they will be gone by the weekend. Condition: In excellent antique preowned condition., Material: Silver, Provenance: Ownership History Not AvailableCrab
