    Hi! It's in Arabic. A difficult task. Egypt? Iran? You'll need someone who can read Arabic. Unfortunately, it's not my forte.

    The image in the centre needs to be moved 90 degrees to the right and maybe needs to be reversed. The work on the piece makes identification more difficult.
    I know Claretjugcollector has a very fine collection of Islamic silver: maybe he could help.

    I can read and write Persian... It's very hard to make out. I think it says "gol-neshin" which would make sense if it's a round vase. Gol (Flower) neshin (resting or sitting)
