From 1037 to 1194, the Seljuks united Mesopotamia and most of Persia under their rule. During this period, the technique of decorating bronze vessels with inlaid silver or copper, or both, was developed in eastern Persia. From here the technique spread to Mosul (now Al Mawsil in northern Iraq) with which it became particularly associated.
In the thirteenth century, work of the Mosul type was done in Aleppo and Damascus in Syria. Ewers and other vessels were produced but the most common articles produced were broad based candlesticks for mosques. On the finest items, gold decoration was used rather copper.
From Syria, the technique spread to Egypt and, eventually, throughout Moslem North Africa.
