Hello,

Please send more images of the ladle. Currently there is one close-up that shows a close-up view.

Hi,

This is definitely not Arabic writing and from the smooth, even planishing rings as well as the overall construction the ladle dates to the 20th century.

What is the writing do you think?
Expert:  Nora replied 1 year ago.

It appears more to be a decorative design than a language.

I will opt-out here and open your question again to all the experts at no additional charge. If someone recognizes the symbols as a known language, they will respond to you here.

You do not need to re-post the question.
