Cast goblet, convex bottom, convex body, vertical grooves poly-lobed rim, looping handle flattened at both ends to ease holding the goblet

  Siah-darreh, Guilan, 1966
9-10th century AD
Height: 6 cm (2.4 in)
Rim diameter: 12.7 cm (5.08 in)

Decoration: Vertical grooves on the body and rim's crenellations prolonging them make for the goblet's appearance of an eight-petals flower.

Patina: The body's patina appears as wart-like green corrosion and glossy black stained patches, fully comparable with patina of other brass objects. That of the handle appears as a greenish layer typical of low tin bronze. This difference of patina types clearly shows the difference of alloys between handle and body.
