Summary/Abstract: Through the analysis of two examples from the collection of the Ferenc Hopp Museum of Eastern Asiatic Arts (FHMEA), Budapest, this short paper proposes a possible background for what might be regarded as the most common type of Southern Iranian brassware of the 8th/14th century. The article argues that certain religious institutions, especially the shrine of Sheikh Abū Ishāq Kāzerūnī might have had a role in its evolution.
