A heavyish brass vintage desk weight in the form of Qadi, who was a judge who oversaw all the laws of the Ottoman Empire, and presided over civil and criminal cases in their cities. His remit included dividing up inheritance after someone's death, finding solutions between feuding parties, and prosecuting criminals.

The figure has a manufactured hole in the base which has a thread to it, and this desk weight might have been mounted on something in the past. The desk weight has been cleaned but might benefit from further cleaning (depending on the buyer’s taste).

The figure stands just under 4in high to the top of his turban. Exact age unknown but probably dates from the first or middle part of last century. Weighs over 340g.
