14th-17th century. Period of Suleiman the Magnificent. Medium man's size, about 9-9 1/2, the band of oval form. Large oval bezel, stepped above delicately scalloped edge. The top line bordered, with leaf like infill and central Arabic signature. Bronze with particularly fine goldish patina, perhaps the remnants of original gold overlay.
