FREE PICK-UP IN THE CHICAGOLAND AREA. Up for your consideration is a museum-quality antique Middle Eastern/Persian hand-hammered bronze vase.The vase is made out of three fused pieces, comprising the underside (which is dovetailed), the lower portion of the vase, and the upper portion, just above the medallions. The vase measures 12" tall, and about 9" wide. The vase is profusely hand-chased, featuring primarily geometric designs, with 9 beautiful oval panels featuring Persian letters and differing scenes with people and animals. There is also a beautiful band with a variety of land animals walking toward the bottom, and additionally there are birds hidden in the design throughout. It is completely hand-chased and hand-formed from what were initially pounded flat sheets of bronze. It is in excellent condition. There are minor dents and dings, but this is primarily from the hand-hammered (and hand-formed) nature of the manufacture of the piece. There is nothing distracting or disconcerting. The patina is rich and even throughout, and there is green verdigris in the interior.
