His bio is below. Egypt (?), 700’s to 800’s. Egyptian Revival Faience Blue Relief Molded Dish Plate Grapes Coptic Christian. Heavily potted pottery dish with relief molded interior, straight sides and un-everted rim with depression in the cavetto roundel, the interior with a rope chain undulating and forming 12 petals separated by dotted lines, and enclosing faint symbols of grape or corn and leaves, a Coptic style cross or “god’s eye cross”, and a third symbol that might be a fish or long flower bud and three raised dots, bead at the rim and no decoration to the underside. Cavetto with a butterfly (?) design. underside un decorated, lacking footring and with three spur marks to the base from the firing. All with a heavy blue crackled faience type glaze. Restored crack, staining, age darkening, crackling to glaze, minor glaze loss. NB - we could not find an exact match for this style of plate ...keep scrolling there are 12 pictures and more description beneath the photos below! Click on any photo to see it in its original size in a separate tab. and so a lot of extrapolation comes from the design elements and the material. Coptic artisans in Egypt kept traditions of Ancient Egyptian faience alive until the end of the 7th century when Islamic blue traditions carried on the technology in Kashan and other ceramic traditions, but this plate has no connection to the Islamic design traditions of the 8th century - 18th century. The images of grape and cross would suggest a Christian cultural tradition, but the exact location - Egypt, Levant, Palestine, Israel is hard to define without a dated museum or collection example. As such, this item is sold without guarantee of age or place of origin, but us to our best guess of the late 700’s Coptic Egyptian tradition. It measures approx. 9" across and 1 1/4" high.

We put YQZ in each of our titles so you can search our items easily. Terms Of Service Selling on eBay has been our primary focus since 1998. We uphold and instill the value of treating all of our customers as if they are family. Our company motto is to "Be courteous, promptly answer e-mails, be fair in all our dealings, and try and make friends of each and every customer." Unfortunately, in today's market with eBay's rating system and the never ending rate increases in the U.S. Postal & other carrier rates, we need to define and explain our methods of business. ONE - Who We Deal With We sell and ship worldwide to anywhere, so please email us for a quote to wherever you happen to be. TWO - Tracking We are required to put tracking on every package, even if it raises the cost of shipping it. THREE - Shipping Charges We charge shipping based on the USPS system. We will sometimes ship via courier if we can get it to you within the same time frame or faster. We add a reasonable cost for materials and handling. Our materials cost is based on exactly what it has cost us to wrap similar sized items in the past. We realize that almost everything we sell is valuable to you and there is nothing worse than having something break in its final journey to your hands. We do our best to pack properly and use the correct materials to protect your win. If we are able to get the item to you for less than our quote we will refund the difference to you! For oversized items or items that will take special attention to package, (building a crate, wrapping many small items individually, etc.), we ask you to email us for a quote on shipping prior to the auction ending. If you do not, we charge the same amount as if you did. FOUR - International Shipping We charge shipping based on the USPS international system. The rates follow the same guidelines as number 3 above, though for international customers we add an additional $1.00 to cover the extra paperwork involved in international shipping. If an amount goes over $100 in value we will only ship it with Priority or Express Mail, regardless how small an item. That allows for us to have international tracking. We have to include tracking even on First Class Mail, so we can not just throw something in an envelope and stick a stamp on it. FIVE - Insurance eBay's policies no longer allows us to charge the client for insurance. However... we still apply insurance to any item that goes over $27.00 in value. We reserve the right to use the insurance carrier of our choice. Sometimes that is Postal or the Carrier's Insurance and sometimes that is a private insurance company such as DSI or U-PIC/Shipsurance. If we use a private insurance company the package will not be marked insured, though it will be covered. SIX - Methods of Payment Accepted We abide by eBay's rules and try and stay abreast of their changes. We accept Paypal. Paypal also accepts the major credit cards, or we also take Credit Cards Directly over the phone, (MC, VISA, DISCOVER, AMERICAN EXPRESS, CARTE BLANCHE, DINERS CLUB, JCB) Bottom line, whatever method is most convenient for you. SEVEN - Time Frame To Pay We ask all auctions to be paid for in the fastest possible time frame. (This is all we do for a living and we need the money to pay the bills and buy more unique and fun items to put up on eBay). If an item goes unpaid we report the transaction to eBay to recover our fees, this counts as a strike against the winning bidder unless they step forward and pay. EIGHT - Shipping Time Frame We make every effort to ship in a timely manner. We are listing tons of items, and are just plain swamped, so we have to schedule a special time to pack and ship. We ship on a first paid, first shipped basis. (We do not ship any item until it has been paid and the funds have cleared.) With the ebb and flow of payments we manage to get everything out of the door within one week. If there is a rush, we will make every effort to work with you in getting it out of the door faster. As you can see from our feedback, we do not disappoint. OF COURSE, items that need special attention, crating, etc adds to the time frame of those items. NINE - Local Pickup Sometimes it makes sense to come by and pickup your items. Sometimes an item is just too big for any other option. If you've arranged local pickup with us, you must pickup the item within 30 days otherwise it will be subject to storage fees and/or relisting. Storage fees for items begin one month after being won, and the fee consists of $5 per item or 10% of the value, whichever is greater, each month it is stored. If the storage of the item exceeds 11 months or exceeds the overall purchase value, the item will be ours to resell in order to recover the storage fees. TEN - Communication Please feel free to contact us at anytime, with any question or comment. Unless we are out of town, we make an effort to answer all emails as quickly as possible.
