There is a HIGH PRICE on this 15 piece RICE CURRY DINNER SET. But there are good reasons why the price is high.

It is AN EXTREMELY RARE ANTIQUE TREASURE.

KING FAROUK OF EGYPT INHERITED THE PALACES OF HIS great-grandfather, Pasha
Isliam, King; his grandfather King Fuad I, and his father King Fuad II, along with all the contents of those palaces.

King Farouk was a voracious antique collector, accumulated a vast hoard
of treasures which he purchased on lavish spending sprees.

After Farouk was overthrown and sent into exile, the new coup in power, commissioned Southeby's to appraise and
sell the enormous collection in 1952.

It was called SALE OF THE CENTURY in newspapers and magazines. An American
oil tycoon in Egypt, John Mendenhahl, purchased thousands of King Farouk's treasures.

This very rare 15 piece Rice Curry Set
was one of many treasures John Mendenhahl purchased.

In the 1970's we sold many of those King Farouk's treasures, which Mendenhahl had purchasedd.

Owners have asked us to find a buyer and handle the sale of several more of their rare Farouk antique items.

The large tray is engraved in an all-over pattern of scrolls, vines, leaves, floral shapes, except for the 7 circular medallion areas which contain engraved Arabic writings.

A Muslim prayer is engraved in Arabic inside those 7 circular areas evenly spaced apart in the tray. For each bowl place there is a prayer. Each Muslim prayer is different from the other six. The center larger bowl is for curry. The Diner's Bowls surround the
center curry bowl.

The tray is 31 1/4" LONG,
23 1/4" WIDE.
Weight of the entire set is approx. 40 lbs.

I think this kind of metal craft is
called Damsascus Work or DAMASCENE? with origins in the area of Damascus.

It is in EXCELLENT ANTIQUE CONDITION.
It such a rare set that it should be described as irreplaceable.
