Description

Description

Chosen to complement The Met exhibition Jerusalem 1000 1400: Every People Under Heaven, this handsome tray recalls the medieval metalwork that was acquired by royal patrons as well as by European visitors to the Holy City. Among the rare metalwork in the exhibition is a group of precious vessels made by some of the most gifted smiths of Baghdad, Damascus, and Cairo, all bearing the name of the Mamluk sultan al-Nasir Muhammed ibn Qala'un.

A large tray in this group was likely used for hospitality; by virtue of its size and the elaboration of its inscriptions, it is one of the most luxurious objects linked to the name of the sultan, who was known for the lavish entertainment of his amirs and officers. Decorative metal serving trays remain popular in the Middle East today.

Made by a professional artisan using traditional techniques and decorative patterns. Due to the unique handmade process, no two trays are alike.
