Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description In Arab countries and Muslim realms in the Mediterranean region, artistic innovation flourished in the 9th-14th centuries. Metalworkers cast and hammered basins, vases, and incense burners from brass, engraved the surface with intricate designs, and then inlaid the decorations with gold and silver. This basin demonstrates this metalworking and silver inlay technique.
