Seller: musickman1979 (200) 100%, Location: Davenport, Iowa, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 221597225903 Material: Copper, Details: RARE ANTIQUE TINNED COPPER/BRONZE BOWL ISLAMIC/PERSIAN CEREMONIAL BOWL Welcome to my auction. I have a beautiful antique tinned copper or bronze bowl which I found at a barn sale in upstate Vermont. The exact origin and age are unknown, from my research it looks like it’s from the 18th century or earlier. My research shows it as a Islamic (Persian) Safavid period tinned copper bowl identified as a Ceremony Bowl. This very nice example has hand scribed decoration around the top rim and either a makers mark or owners mark on the bottom. The condition of the bowl is the exact same from the day I pulled it from the old barn. I have not cleaned or polished it, I wanted to keep it original.
