Ancient Artifact Review 72 : Antique Jade /Silver Afghan Persian Multicontainer ( 19th -20th Century)
This is an old Persian multicontainer from Afghanistan. I couldn't figure out the purpose of this container. The body is made of green jade and reinforced with silver frame and stand. Could this be some sort of candle holder or traditional lamp?
Bought this pot from Abu Dhabi and estimated from 19th-20th Century.
Dim : 140mm in diamter and 160mm in height
Date : 19th-20th Century CE
Material : Greem jade and silver
Origin : Afghanistan
