Origin - dont know how much you know. But we are in the Ottoman empire. A newer edition but definite Ottoman.

Some of the design elements are Islamic, to be sure. The workmanship looks very typical of 20th century Indian / Pakistani brass.

I think they are from Pakistan and modern. Perhaps Warren will be able to identify the region from which the writing originates.

I see the admin already addressed the other "question."

Regards,

Good evening Hose and David,

Yes definitely India/Pakistan. Let's see if we can get a translation of either Arabic but most likely Urdu.

The square building on the one vessel is the Kaaba in Mecca

Immediately above it is written in Arabic "Makkah Muazzama" - glorious Mecca.

This looks like a memento from Saudi Arabia- perhaps from the Hajj or Umra.

I expect that the item was made in India or Pakistan.

The script in the rounds is beyond me but if all four are related, it is likely Arabic as well.
