Afghan antiquities

Well, not really antiquities…more like tourist chachkies but it’ll do.

The top figure is an oil lamp which sustained a bit of damage to the lid while transiting from Central Asia to the good ol’ U.S. of A.

The bottom is a plate-bowl sort of thing that was made in a village (whose name I can’t remember – Damn you neurons!) in Parwan province.  That’s about the only item I have that I’m reasonably sure is Afghan.
