Islamic 'Dallah' Coffee Pot from Nazareth
A vintage brass ‘Dallah’ from Nazareth.
A dallah is an Arabic coffee pot which has been used for centuries to brew coffee. The special coffee is called Qahwa and is made through a series of steps. The pot is also used to make Khaleeji, a spicy and bitter coffee traditionally served during feasts such as Eid al-Fitr.
This brass pot is beautifully decorated with Arabic writing, a scroll design and has a little bird on the top of the lid. The lid has a hinge and the interior appears to be lined with tin which would make this very usable today.
The coffee pot measures approx. 18cm to the top of the lid, and including the handle, measures approx. 21cm across. It is in excellent condition with no dents or scratches.
The bottom is marked with the maker’s mark: Iskandar Matar and Sons, Nazareth.
An unusual coffee pot.
