An exquisite kashkul (begging bowl) used by a Dervish, a Sufic ascetic. This kashkul has been created from the hollowed out huh of a Coco de Mer palm nut. A band of finely worked silver-damascened steel runs the entire length of the rim, with large shaped cartouches extending down the bow and stern.
Calligraphic inscriptions in nastaliq script are inlaid in silver to fill the steel band. Silver inlays further been used to accent the spearhead motif extending down the sides of the hull. The Coco deMer displays a fine warm, dark patina inside and out, while the steel is bright and resplendent.
The holes are for attaching a chain, so the the kashkul could be worn over the shoulder or hung when not in use. It is believed to be late 18th or early 19th century.
