    Welcome to Tnet from Toronto Kezzba!

    If you would be so kind as to provide us with the dimensions of your piece.
    Also, I'm having trouble figuring out if this is a pic of the top or the bottom?

    I'm thinking it's either Middle Eastern or East Indian in origin, but was it a functional piece or simply a decorative piece.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    I would be pretty sure that's from India. It's a traditional design in the hand engraved style of what is sometimes known as "Mughal ware" which comes mostly from central and northern India. Here's a couple of similar vintage examples (also hand engraved), the second pair of which were made to serve as candlesticks:

    Dating is difficult but the patina and general appearance of yours suggests its bronze and an earlier example than the brass pieces shown above. That doesn't mean it's ancient though. I would guess late 1800s to early 1900s.
