Persian(?) platter

Yesterday I found this great platter.

The decoration makes me think that it comes from Iran region or neighboring ones.
It has no marks but in a decoration area there are some written and a very small one in the edge which I seem to read 90, perhaps in reference to purity.
Any help will be appreciated.
Regards
Amena

Hi Amena,

Compare to marks to those on this piece: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=37789

Are they similar?

Trev.

I can not judge whether the markings are similar, however there are some details in the decoration that I believe not be appropriate in a Malaysian landscape

But I could be wrong

This is Persiam (Iranian) and clearly of high quality.
Usually Persian silver is 84% pure but many items were also 90% pure and I suspect thats what the 90 refers to

Hi MG
Thanks for your note.
I kept looking for information about this plate and I found a lady who speaks Farsi. Unfortunately she does not speak well Italian or other languages known to me, so I just understood that the written on the books refers to two famous works of Renaissance poets and the other written is referring to the purity.
I keep searching
Any other note will be appreciated
