Dear Max,

Thank you for your request. The presented object is a copper tray with the measurements of 31 1/2 inches. It depicts a typical scene how we know it from Persian and Mogul period miniatures. It could be a wedding scene or is a mixture of a typical scene of a picknick from a hunting expedition and a scene from a love roman with the dancing or standing couple in the middle. This tray or plate was probably made in Pakistan in the last third of the 20th century.
This piece is in good condition and no damages are visible.
An estimation would be between 150 to 400 USD.
This estimation is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.

With best regards,
Georg
