This time WITH the photos. I must be getting old. Thanks to all that have answered. I am still a little confused. I think this is a kalij from the early 20th century (last years of the Ottoman empire) and I think it was probably made in what was then called Syria or somewhere on the Arab peninsula. Am I wrong about this? Thanks again.
