Need Help Identifying Persian? Turkish? Maker's Mark

Postby glowghosty » Wed May 20, 2020 6:03 pm

Hello,
I have a large ornate oval tray that I've been trying to research. I'm not sure if it's silver or silverplate. It has a maker's mark on the back featuring a bird on a branch with Arabic writing? If anyone recognizes it, any help would be appreciated. Thank you. https://ibb.co/GcxW8Nz <img src="https://i.ibb.co/cDg6ZV4/DSC05472.jpg" alt="DSC05472" border="0">

Hello

The top line reads Mohammed Al Maqah or Al Maqat which must be a family name

The bottom line is not so clear but on the left it appears to read Fes which is a city in Morocco

I am sure this is a Moroccan piece

The last line is jawahrat fes or Jewel of Fes - possibly the name of the company or workshop
