    Kashkuls carried the food donations on which Sufi dervishes and wandering ascetics relied for sustenance. They symbolised the emptying of the Sufi’s ego through the renunciation of worldly goods and aspirations. The bowls were produced in a variety of media and were held or hung from the shoulder by metal chains. The earliest examples date to the thirteenth or fourteenth century, and their form may have been derived from crescent- and boat-shaped wine bowls made in pre-Islamic Iran.

    Metalworking is one of the many decorative arts that has always been highly prized in the Islamic world. The transformation of an inert metal into a glittering and precious object was a valued process. Islamic metal craftsmen, heirs to the tradition set by the Sassanid and Byzantine civilizations, among others, perpetuated and then reinterpreted these skills. Unfortunately, the art of metalwork is becoming more and more rare and the quality of workmanship is no longer what it once was with a few exceptions.

    Detailed Description:

    Item Number: 475

    Age: 1800s
    Country of Origin: Syria
    Material: Engraved Copper
    Tray Size: 57 cm
    Stand Height: 43 cm
    Calligraphy: Calligraphy was done by a contemporary Lebanese calligrapher on antique brass tray. The main text of calligraphy is Ayat al-Kursi: 

    God, there is no god, except Him, the Living, the Eternal Sustainer. Slumber does not seize Him, neither sleep; to Him belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth; who is there, that shall intercede with Him save by His leave? He knows what lies before them, and what is after them; and they encompass nothing of His knowledge, save such as He wills. His throne subsumes the heavens and the earth; the preserving of them wearies Him not; He is the Sublime, the Tremendous.
