EASTERN ANATOLIA – TURKEY hand carved copper offering plate. A rare hand forged and carved copper stand-plate, most probably belonging to a Church. We think the unique design in lattice forms are non-Islamic because of its drawing. It might belong to an Armenian Church from eastern Anatolia. It is restored on one edge – can be noticed in overall image – lower left side. It is overall in good condition with a patina.
