Large Iranian/Persian Tray Help

Postby effreek » Sat Mar 21, 2020 10:03 am

Looking for some help identifying the marks on this beautiful tray! : ) I tweaked the exposure on the mark to get a clearer image. Let me know if I should show the original to help. : ) A family member that knows Arabic told me its Arabic letters but he can't read it. He said its probably Iranian/Farsi. Any help would be appreciated! I found this recent post that looks to be very similar in style and script but not the same words. (at least from what I can tell)

The design suggests that is almost certainly Moroccan

I can make out two words in Arabic

On the top line انتاج - produce - the second word might be a family or company name

On the lower line فضة - silver

Hope this helps to some extent

Damon,

Thanks so much for the help! : ) After looking up Moroccan designs I think you are correct in that.

Why does the second word look different than what I'm expecting with the silver Arabic word?

Thanks again for the help! : )
