Just acquired another one of these Middle Eastern Trench art pieces. Much of it originated in Damascus.
The base shell has been decorated with applied copper and silver. This particular example has an unusual addition in that the bottom has also been decorated.
Most of the time the text will be from the Koran; however, I have not had it translated.
This is only my third piece of this type. These are some of the most difficult trench art pieces to acquire as they normally bring very high prices.
