Today we are happy to offer for sale a fabulous antique Indo-Persian etched erotic tin and copper decorative tray!
This exquisite piece is nicely crafted and detailed. The large (15″) tray is crafted of tin with applied copper decorations. The tray features an ornate and highly-detailed erotic scene of a sultan dancing with a topless odalisque while a topless female musician plays a guitar and a man plays a drum; the background features trees, birds and flowers. The scene is framed by two copper bands that frame the outer tin band decorated with flowers and birds. The reverse side features a later soldered wall-hanging hook.
Tray presents well and is in very good antique condition, with minor wear/scuffing, tarnish and patina commensurate with age.
Dimensions: 15-3/8″ in diameter, 3/8″ in depth
