A very rare 16th -17th century Turkish Ottoman Islamic Scale skillfully made of hand wrought iron with finials stylized in a dragon’s head and complete with its original weight in the shape of a round Islamic building with rosette windows and a domed roof. An Impressive Islamic blacksmith work of art.

MEASUREMENTS: Overall length: 100.3 cm (39 1/2 inches).

CONDITION: In good condition showing its age with a nice usage patina.

Many of the examples with exactly the same scales can be seen in 16th and 17th century Ottoman miniatures. The stylized dragon’s head is one of the characteristic early Ottoman metal work decorative motifs and frequently appears as an ornament on 16th -17th century ottoman metalwork.
