PLEASE Help me identify this unique piece

Post by justagirlnamedjane on June 2nd 2017, 7:33 am

I have acquired an interesting piece of handmade pottery adorned with brass I believe. It looks old. There are no stamps or anything to identify its origin. I cant find any similar items on the web. Does anyone know what region and period this is from or even what it was used for.

Metal decoration of Ceramics is common in the Middle East. Could be from Iran-Afghanistan-India area. There isn't enough patina on the metal work for it to be very old. Likely to be from the 1980s or later.

Got to agree with NaomiM, looks middle eastern/Indian. The mixed use of materials and the aged look is very common in what these countries make for modern interiors in the west.

Next time you get a chance to visit a big antique fair or an area with lots of quality antique stores go an explore. The sellers are normally happy to talk to you and let you handle items. You will find it does not take much experience to tell the difference between actually old and looking old. Unfortunately that experience comes from holding something in your hand, feeling its surface and how it has worn. Not everyone gets that chance. So if you can grab it.
