Hi
I posted a link to a table I recently purchased.  It has writing on the brass top.  I am trying to determine what country this was made and if possible a translation on what it says.  Thank you!

This is what I could make of it:

The inscriptions are definitely in Arabic calligraphy. They are etched statements of praise for a King.
It was probably designed by an artist/craftsman as a gift for a king.

For example: one says: 

عز لمولانا السلطان الملك = Glory to our lord the King

Looks extremely rare. Probably 'one of a kind'.


Needs a close look by an expert (to establish origin).
