Persian Filigree Stem Bowl Collection – 7 Pieces – Sky Pattern Set

In the heart of Isfahan, under the majestic shadow of the Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque, a timeless craft is kept alive. Here, where the ancient cobblestone pathways echo with tales of emperors and poets, an extraordinary collection takes shape in the hands of master artisans. It’s not just a collection of stem bowls; it’s a testament to Persian opulence, history, and the timeless appeal of handcrafted excellence.

Imagine a setting where, amidst an array of luxurious furnishings, this majestic stem bowl set commands the centre stage. The centerpiece, the large stem bowl, with its dignified stature of 22 cm (8.6 inches) in height, evokes admiration from every guest. As they draw closer, their gaze wanders over the vast 20 cm (7.8 inches) width of the bowl’s head, then down to its elegantly tapering 12 cm (4.7 inches) base. The craftsmanship is palpable; each intricate detail of the Persian filigree technique or Malileh Kari (Persian: ملیله کاری) meticulously wrought in silver-coated copper tells tales of centuries gone by.

Accompanying this masterpiece are six smaller, yet equally opulent, stem bowls. Each one, standing proudly at 12 cm (4.7 inches), extends into an 11 cm (4.3 inches) wide head, before concluding in an 8 cm (3.1 inches) base. While lighter, their weight in history and artistic value is immeasurable.

The narrative isn’t just of an object, but of an experience. A gathering around these stem bowls is no ordinary affair. As fruits, sweets, or other delicacies are placed into them, they transform every meal into a royal feast, reminiscent of the grand banquets once held in Persian palaces.

Guests, enticed by the brilliance of the collection, find themselves swapping stories – stories of travels, art, history, and of course, the splendid city of Isfahan. The bowls serve not only delicacies but also timeless memories and dreams of far-off lands.

In owning this collection, you’re not merely purchasing bowls; you’re acquiring a fragment of history, a slice of art, and a conversation starter for countless evenings to come. Let every glance towards them remind you of the richness of Persian heritage and the unparalleled luxury of handcrafted artistry.
