I added a picture of an older and more original shibriya of the same origin just for comparison. Look at the differences in shape and details.


Thank you for posting the example of a traditional shibriya. I have had one in my collection that I always thought was mid-20th century made for local market. Would you (or anyone else) be able to provide comments on the item pictured below?

Much obliged
