Is this a silver bowl as am not so sure? There is three markings on this bowl. Two in arabic and one i think in number can really see it clearly.

Hi welcome to the forum. Yes it is Persian silver 84 zolotnik or 87.5% pure silver. A beautiful piece.

Hi,

The first mark is maker’s mark/name in Fârsi.
The 2nd mark the Persian numeral Û¸Û´ or 84 (zolotniki) as 875/1000 parts silver.
If Annasttasiaa pops up, I am sure, she can reveal a lot more!
In the meantime browse the Persian topics, enjoy.
