Dear Annie,

Thank you for your request and patience. The present object is a copper tray how it is typical for Middle-East decorative arts with a diameter of 31 inches. This tray has a carved decor and an open-worked decor at the edge of the plate. Objects like these are made from Turkey to Pakistan. This piece could be highly possible made in Turkey because of the elaborate carvings and the fact that this plate is made out of copper and not out of brass. Sadly there is no detailed image of the carving so we can´t judge the quality.
An estimate would be between 150 to 300 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,
