    Thank you Kronos! I didn’t even bother trying to research it in the store, I felt perfect for metal softness/flexibility/tone and it was $4

    Marsh Arab niello, also called Amara-work, typically made by Mandaean silversmiths - the large structure is most likely the Samarra Mosque rather than the Tower of Babel (an unusual motif)...

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge Cheryl. I almost missed this one, it was on a bottom shelf and it looked like a stainless steel plate with a cheap painted overlay. It was only out of stubbornness that I picked it up; once I had it in my hands I felt much better about the prospect of it being silver.

    The good part is no one else figured it out either. All the better for you.
