The uninterrupted wide band of mounted warriors wielding maces, swords, lances, bows and arrows, and shields on a sparsely decorated background and the three vigorous and extremely complex vegetal patterns are reminsicent of the decoration of Ayyubid metalwork. The peculiarities of headdress and robe, as well as the treatment of birds, horses, and leaves forming the ground line, also appear on early Mamluk metal objects.
