Remarkable Persian Silver Tray by KAREGARAN - poems by عمر خیام
This large tray, of rectangular form, with gently curved edges, is one of the finest engraved silver Persian trays we have seen. It is of thick, heavy, solid silver
and is profusely engraved with exotic birds, lions and other animals amongst scrolling foliage and flowers - all arrayed in a style reminiscent of carpets
produced in Isfahan.
The design incorporates an otherwise plain ribbon that winds itself around the tray that is finely engraved in Persian script with lines from the Rubaiyat of
Omar Khayyam, an eleventh-twelth century Persian poet and philosopher.
