Inscribed, Soumela Monastery, 1718

A silvered copper tray with a narrow flat rim engraved with a metrical inscription and the date 1718. It mentions that the tray belongs to the Monastery of the Virgin Soumela and was dedicated by one Konstantinos Panys. From as early as the 16th century Pontic coppersmiths and their creations enjoyed particular renown. This tray is one of the earliest known that can be linked with Pontic copper-working.
