Description
A charming mid-century World War Two Arabian silver and niello compact mirror crafted in the 1940s. The base bears the inscription - "Wendy From Iraq". This compact was crafted by an Arabian silversmith as a memento for an Allied serviceman serving in the Middle East who would go on to gift it to his loved one. The lid is decorated with a gorgeous niello design. Framed by a diamond shaped border. A palm tree can be seen in the foreground. A traditional dhow can be seen sailing on glittering silver water. Typically Arabian buildings and palm trees are shown in the hinterland. Lift the lid to reveal a powder well and a mirror. The mirror gives a clear reflection which is ever so slightly distorted. The base is embellished with a charming niello waterscape, dhows and an oasis. This piece tests as high grade silver. However, it is not hallmarked which is common for items made in Arabia at this time.
