    Hi,

    Apologies I posted this in the wrong thread. I picked these 2 plates, would appreciate if anyone can give me any info on them. No hallmarks and it seems they are copper, silver plated.
    Thanks. plate 1.jpg plate 2.jpg

    The men are medieval European, your image is Persian.

    I certainly get an Assyrian griffin feel off the winged creature.

    I think you are right, they might be Persian.

    This one is 100% Persian. it has the Zoroastrian Faravahar symbol on top, and other Zoroastrian imagery.

    It is made of tinned copper.

    Zoroastrian museum with Faravahar:

    I suspect the other one is Persian too, but it is too grainy for me to see.

    You have confused me completely. Are both of these photos of one of your plates? Figures look Mesopotamian to me.

    I think post 5 is not the op. So I think you did not.

    It is the same plate, the more yellow one is how I bought it, then I cleaned it and took another photo. plate 2 detail.jpg

    Here is a better photo of the other plate.
