Description
An object of substantial weight yet engraved with great delicacy, this tray might have been used to offer refreshments to honored guests. The central motif is an intricately entwined series of knots, while the outer rim is decorated with Cufic inscriptions. It is not only a beautiful work of art, but also served a practical function. How amazing to think of the culture that surrounded itself with such loveliness. - (FZ.141)
