This inlaid bronze casket with Kufic inscription was masterfully produced in the 12th century Seljuk period. Possibly of Syrian origin, the lid is hammered from a flat sheet of brass with the bottom formed by folding and joining a section cut from a flat sheet. The seams are on three sides of the base and in the rear under the right-hand hinge. Brass hinges on the object are attached by copper rivets. Originally, the object would have a handle and front clasp which are now missing. <br /><br />

On one side of the line there are three straight lines that meet at a common point; on the other side of the line there is an arch vertically bisected by a straight line. One of the recesses in the arch appears to have been filled in with some form of metal, possibly lead.

Goldweights are small objects cast from brass used to weigh out quantities of gold and gold dust.  They are cast using a lost-wax casting technique, wherein wax is sculpted into the desired shape and a mold is pressed around the wax model.  Then, the mold is heated and the wax drained out, leaving a void in the shape of the original wax model.  Liquid brass is poured into the mold and allowed to set before the caster cracks the mold open and retrieves the finished goldweight.
