    It says Fes (a city in Morocco) so it may well be from there given the style.

    Great catch. I was in Morocco recently, and should have caught this too.

    I'm with the others, a Moroccan brass tray. I don't know if yours was made as a table top, it doesn't look flat enough in the photos. Most trays are not made for tables, btw.
    It is likely to be a maker's mark. I can't tell if it is Tifinagh (Berber script) or Arabic.
    We don't have any Tifinagh translators, and I don't think we currently have any Arabic translators. But Uzi could show the mark in his local mosque and ask if they can tell him what it says.
