This research examines some Syrian copper objects exhibited in the Museum of Arab Lounge in the Agricultural Museum in Cairo. These objects arrived at the museum during the rule of former President Jamal Abed Al-Nasser (July 1961, when Egypt and Syria united in one country named The United Arab Republic). These objects are six pieces that consist of two bowls, which have writings and decorative inscriptions, two water buckets for carrying water with plants inscriptions, and two trays; one with Koran verses, and the other has inscriptions of battles and wars. All pieces are undated and there is no technical description of them. This research aims also at examining these pieces, treating and maintaining them to clarify the inscription and decorative writings hide behind corrosion compounds and, therefore, studying the possibility of identifying the age to which these Syrian copper objects belong.
