19thC Islamic Bronze ‘Magic’ Bowl

A bronze 19thC magic bowl with bell-shaped profile and low base ring, the inner and outer faces decorated with incised roundels and bands of calligraphic script; raised central cone.  In Islamic cultures magic bowls were made at least as early as the 12th century, though their use can be traced back to ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt and were widely used in the Roman empire. They were used in Islam in the treatments of disease and other ailments, including insect and snake bites. Water placed in such bowls was believed to take on curative aspects after having come into contact with the various talismanic and Koranic symbols and verses etched onto such bowls. It was then drunk by the afflicted person.
