Re: Silver from Iran?

Hello,

This does have low content silver. It looks more copper plated in silver. Iranian. I have a piece like this and was always doubtful it was silver. Like I said it has low content silver.

Re: Persian Ostrich Egg- Mystery Item?

Hello,
It says "Seegh Bimayos" meaning crafted in May 1911. A beautiful piece. Very special. I've not seen another either.

Re: Persian Silver Items

Dear WarrenKundis,

I had initially posted that it was of Persian origin but upon a second glance, I realized they were not. Sorry for the confusion. Thank you for the link.

Re: Persian Silver Items

Hello,

These pieces have a strong Persian Kajari resemblance, however they are not Persian. They are Kashmiri. That letter may well be the incorporation of a family crest or simply personalizing the pieces which were produced by Kashmiri artists..

Re: Unknown plate

A fine piece. The left mark is the numeral as Warren states. The writing to to its right simply says "eyar" which simply means content and to the far right, the only clear visible letter is the Arabic (Y), perhaps the initial of the maker.

Re: Antique (Persian?) Filigree Bracelet

Hello Shofner303, The bracelet has indications of Persian artwork, especially the birds, used much in Isfahani artwork.
