    I bought this small bowl with a lot of other stuff many years ago and I have no idea of it's purpose or value,
    If anyone can shed light on it I would be most grateful. Many thanks in advance. IMG_5644-001.JPG

    Googling Assouan yields connections to the Egyptian location of the Aswan Dam on the Nile and the Nubian Museum. I get the feeling from the writing on the bottom that this was some kind of souvenir.

    SMALL EGYPTN BOWL.jpg NOT totally sure how much this helped, as it's maybe an Egyptian name, but I enlarged, inverted, then reverted, and tried to remove ONLY the black/ or dirty around the lower letters.....maybe someone else can read the name????

    If you mean the word between Assouan and 1881 - it's Nubia. A place name, not a person name.

    Interesting with lots of rustic charm. But yes,seemingly a souvenir thing. But I don’t know what to make of the 1891 date and age at all. As as a souvenir I would have expected a 1981 date.

    Maybe for oil or ointment? (But I don’t know)

    My guess would be the 1881 would be the year in which the original was found.
