In the 19th and early 20th Century, when such plates and trays where made, was a time of revival of the old Mameluke style. Metal smiths and artists worked to resurrect the Mameluke style. Both in Europe and among the Muslims grew an interest in such craftsmanship. The craftsmen inlaid softer metals such as silver and gold , into harder metals commonly copper and Brass but also into coarser metals.
Such vases exemplify the Mameluke revival period, taking ordinary metal and inlaying it to create an impressive and high-status item. Out of the Craftsman where also Jewish artists and Metal smiths who occasionally , by order or to a smaller target market adorned the pottery with Jewish ornaments , Biblical writings and Jewish Symbols. These as a whole where much less common and where practiced mostly in Syria (as opposed to General Mameluke style inlaying that was common also in Iran and Egypt). Such, making the Jewish motives ornamented pottery a high valued collectors item.This piece is in very good for it's age , the upper right perimiter edge of the plate is not a smooth/exact curve - most probably as was orriginally made. Provenance - Syria Damascus Jewish Metalsmiths > Israel > Private Hands > Inheritance sale/Antique Deallers.
