EASTERN TURKEY – ARMENIAN hand forged mini Copper plates. Armenians were masters in metal art from copper to silver/gold. Some masters signed their art. One of them has been signed, as good as it can be read – “APMALXAYI APOKPIAN”. Both have great patina and came out so clean after buffing. They might be from Erzurum area.
