Omschrijving
Devotionele schenker (1) - Coco de Mer - Kashkul, versatoio devozionale con iscrizioni in arabo - Iran - Begin 19e eeuw
Goede staat, zie beschrijving - 34×15×13 cm

The kashkul was made from a part of the cocco-de-mer shell, originating from a few of the islands of the Seychelles in the Indian ocean.
Usually the kashkul was used to collect donations from worshippers to Sufi dervishes and wandering ascetics. More rarely, as in this case, it had the specific function of being a talismanic vessel for purifying water, able to alleviate the sufferings of the faithful, that can only be soothed by the words engraved by Allah.
A few signs of wear, but in perfect patina.
