Object Description

14th Century Mamluk brass candlestick with gold and silver inlays
Probably Syrian, c. 1320 – 1340
Height 24cm, diameter 22cm

This magnificent item is a 14th Century Mamluk candlestick, most probably produced in Syria. The candlestick is crafted from brass inlaid with gold and silver. The piece takes the form of a bell, with a wide, conical body set below a narrow cylindrical neck and mouth. The brass is profusely adorned all over with intricate inlays of gold and silver: the two metals woven in a tapestry of arabesques and other foliate forms. Bands of Arabic thuluth inscriptions adorn the surface of the lower body and the neck. The piece is a truly exceptional and important example of Mamluk craftsmanship.
